Join the Great Oaks Fellows
The Great Oaks Fellows is a diverse group of recent college graduates with a variety of backgrounds and interests. Some instructors are interested in education policy and wish to experience life on the ground in an urban school. Others plan to pursue a career in medicine, law or to enroll in another graduate program and wish to first give a year of service. For instructors who wish to become high-performing teachers, Great Oaks offers multiple pathways to certification.
In exchange for serving as an AmeriCorps Great Oaks Fellows member with us, fellows receive fully furnished housing with utilities and basic household items included, a living stipend, health insurance, a Segal Education Award after completing their service hours and the opportunity to be a part of a community where everyone is passionate about changing outcomes for urban students.
Benefits of Serving a Year at Great Oaks
To ensure fellows are prepared to effectively work with students, each year our fellows begin their service in August by participating in intensive pre-service training at their own school. In addition, fellows attend the Great Oaks Forum - a convening of all fellows across our network to participate in professional development, networking and social gatherings.
