Education apprenticeships provide a meaningful opportunity to connect with your community and make an impact. Past Fellows have apprenticed at schools ranging from elementary to high school. As assistant teachers, Fellows help with lesson planning, grading, teaching and often leading English club activities.

Janet taught elementary art classes and co-taught middle school English.

"Every class students improve and grow; every class the students try, they may be shy to start or show their work but they never stop before they begin by saying “I can’t”."

Khadim helped teach at the high school and taught handicrafts at a center for students with disabilities.
