*** This Fellowship has placements available at all four Great Oaks campuses (Newark, NJ; New York, NY; Bridgeport, CT; Wilmington, DE) as well as the Baltimore Collegiate School for Boys located in Baltimore, MD ***
The Great Oaks Fellowship is a diverse group of recent college graduates with a variety of backgrounds and interests. Some fellows are interested in education policy and wish to experience life on the ground in an urban school. Others plan to pursue a career in medicine, law or to enroll in another graduate program and wish to first give a year of service. For fellows who wish to become high-performing teachers, Great Oaks Fellowship offers multiple pathways to certification.
INSTRUCT FOR MASTERY – The GO Fellowship, with its intense focus on individualized instruction, changes education outcomes for students. Small group instruction delivered in the context of a supportive relationship between student and AmeriCorps Fellow will result in a significant increase in student math and ELA achievement. Members will deliver on average, over 200 hours of individualized instruction per student – high-quality lesson time that students in other schools do not receive.
MENTOR FOR LEADERSHIP – Fellows have a fundamental role in supporting students in their social and emotional growth. Fellows collaborate with teachers to coach their students to have a personal investment in their success and to build an understanding that they have control over their lives. Fellows help empower our students to evolve into leaders.

In exchange for serving as an AmeriCorps fellow, you will receive fully furnished housing with utilities and basic household items included, a living stipend, health insurance, a Segal Education Award after completing their service hours and the opportunity to be a part of a community where everyone is passionate about changing outcomes for urban students.
