We also look for candidates who have spent time understanding their identities and how these shape their interactions with others, who can demonstrate knowledge and awareness of current social justice issues, and who have taken action towards creating more just and equitable communities. Applicants with experience, knowledge of and skills in the specific content area for which they are applying will stand out, though that may look very different from one person to the next; we value passion and interest along with experience. Eagle Rock is a tuition-free residential high school that serves a very diverse community of young people from across the country. As such, applicants should be culturally competent working with youth from all communities, regardless of race, political affiliation, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or ability. As the fellowship is an AmeriCorps national program, applicants must be US citizens, nationals or permanent residents.
Each year, we recruit a diverse, talented and passionate group of fellows to join our team. Through their year of service and development, Eagle Rock fellows gain skills they can bring back to their communities, allowing them to become leaders for change in education and social justice.
