fellows (2).jpg

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.


Approximately 30% of our fellows are parents with dependent children and the fellows range in age from 18-40 years old


Over 80% of the 45 fellows we have served since 2015 are the first generation in their families to earn a college degree or professional teaching certificate.

Since 2016, FAE has offered 60 fellows the opportunity to explore education as a career and over 50% are currently working in the field of education or actively pursuing a degree in education.
