Our College Fellow program provides low-income college students from the Latinx community studying education the opportunity to co-teach alongside experienced professional teachers for 5 weeks every summer gaining additional guided practicum experience as they prepare for a teaching degree or certificate. Fellows gain experience in every aspect of running a school and a classroom as members of our summer teaching staff. They are full participants in curriculum training and planning and daily staff meetings.
