The mission of the Denver Fellows program is to close the opportunity gap by providing small group math and literacy instruction for our highest needs students in order to accelerate their academic growth in preparation for college and career.
The fellow positions are an ideal service year for recent college graduates from any major, career changers considering teaching and retirees from a range of fields. Fellows work full time for an entire year before going on to further their own education, lead classrooms or pursue careers in public service. They build strong relationships with a cohort of students and leverage those relationships to increase student engagement and achievement. Fellows build individualized lesson plans using provided curriculum and plan activities that help to fill in academic gaps and support grade level instruction. They work with small groups of no more than 4 students at a time. Fellows receive program-wide professional development as well as targeted individual coaching and development from fellow coordinators.
Fellows provide highly structured support as part of the regular school day. Fellows come from across the country and sign on for participation in the program as part of a year of service before continuing their own education or going on to lead a classroom.
Being a fellow is an intense but rewarding experience. It’s important that each fellow understands the urgency and rigor needed to ensure every child they work with succeeds and feels capable, cared for and connected based on their experience in the program.
