Location: North Las Vegas
Posted on: May 30, 2018

Job Description:

As an AmeriCorps National Teaching Fellow at Citizen Schools, you'll change the lives of middle school students. You'll serve as a member of a diverse team of caring adults dedicated to transforming the school day for middle school students in low income communities. We do this by adding three hours to the end of the school day, during which students receive additional academic support in math or language arts, complete homework in structured sessions and participate in hands-on apprenticeships taught by volunteer professionals from the community.

As a National Teaching Fellow, you will be performing an extraordinary act of citizenship, helping the nation to address one of its greatest challenges, educating our youth in ways that promote self belief, college readiness, and the skills needed to achieve their dreams. It is an opportunity that leads to a better future for students, yet also holds rich benefits for those willing to dedicate two years of their life to national service through AmeriCorps. That's why we call the opportunity: Teach, Serve, Grow.

All National Teaching Fellow positions begin with Summer Institute, an intensive training program during which you will learn the skills needed to successfully serve in low income schools and deliver high quality academic enrichment to students.

  • The MA cohort of Teaching Fellows are located in either Boston or Somerville (start date of August 6, 2018).
  • The NY cohort of Teaching Fellows are located in either Brooklyn or Harlem (start date of August 6, 2018).
  • The CA cohort of Teaching Fellows are located in either Oakland or San Jose (start date of July 23, 2018).

    During your TWO YEARS as a National Teaching Fellow you will:

    SERVE: The ability to connect with students day-to-day and help them through the difficult years of middle school is a profound opportunity for many individuals who join the Fellowship. Fellows are eager to impact the academics of students directly, but also have the opportunity to influence student growth through the lens of a mentor and coach.

    TEACH: Driving academic outcomes is a core component of our mission. On many campuses our Fellows push in or pull out small groups of students to aide instruction that is occurring during the first shift. (occasionally Fellows may deliver new content in select regions only and may vary by campus). Teaching Fellows have an important role to play in the extension of learned content or \"reteaching\"/ reinforcing what was previously delivered by a member of the first shift.

    GROW: Training and support are critical components of the Teaching Fellowship experience and contribute greatly to our Teaching Fellows' overall successes, both in their direct service, and their personal/professional development. We are committed to providing ongoing coaching opportunities throughout their two years of service that will lead to student impact, as well as career advancement.

    It takes a special person to work in education reform and to meet the challenges of today's schools. Before applying, please consider the following qualifications, skills, and experiences that we have found lead to success as a Teaching Fellow. No one candidate will meet every criteria; however, it is a good exercise to review the list in advance of submitting your application to ensure you believe you have \"what it takes\" to support middle school students to help them discover and achieve their dreams.

    Education Requirement- Must have completed at least 60 credit hours or its equivalent at an accredited college or university (according to the standard 1 credit hour, per hour spent in class per week), with a 2.5 cumulative GPA. Bachelor's degree, preferred.
