Citizen Schools’ National Teaching Fellowship is a two year Americorps program for individuals dedicated to directly impacting the futures of middle school students in low income communities across America. Teaching Fellows enter the classroom right away following the completion of an intensive summer training program. We’ll teach you what you need to know to be successful in the classroom, and then offer continued support delivered by on-site coaches. A teaching certificate is not required to join the Fellowship. AmeriCorps Teaching Fellows receive a monthly cash stipend amounting to $23,550 annually before tax and other key benefits.
