Urban Education Year-of-Service Fellowship Opportunity
The Urban Prep Fellows Program recruits graduating college seniors to serve for one year as full-time mentors and tutors to students at Urban Prep Academies, a small network of all-boys charter public high schools serving low-income African American communities in Chicago.
The Urban Prep Fellows Program: A Unique Year of Service Opportunity in Urban Education
In Chicago, just one in forty African-American boys in public schools earns a college degree by age 25. But for three years in a row at Urban Prep Academies, the nation’s first network of all-male charter public high schools, 100% of seniors have gained admission to attend four-year colleges and universities. Do you have the skills, passion, and energy to help us continue to make this vision a reality? Consider applying to join the Urban Prep Fellows Program, a distinctive full-time, one-year service fellowship opportunity for recent college graduates.
Urban Prep Fellows augment and support regular classroom learning by building bonds with students through academic and personal advising, managing after-school activities, communicating with families, and leading a small-group seminar course. During their service year, Fellows are provided with housing, transportation, health and dental insurance, and a monthly living stipend.
