The TeachStart Fellowship offers two pathways to jumpstart your teaching career. The Scholar pathway is a 10-month program where participants will be full-time substitutes earning a salary and benefits, participating in training, a cohort of peers, and receiving paid holidays. Fellows inspire the next generation as active contributors in their local community while exploring a substitute teaching career with a variety of partner schools. The Scholar+ pathway offers the same, with the addition to earning a teaching certification in year two, while also being paid a salary and benefits. Current locations include Greater Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area. All fellows must hold a bachelor’s degree with at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA in order to be eligible for the program.
