About Great Oaks Charter Schools
What sets Great Oaks schools apart from other college preparatory charters is the Great Oaks Fellowship- a selective cadre of recent college graduates who deliver individualized instruction to every student every day. In addition to providing individualized instruction, Fellows mentor students to support social and emotional growth.
The mission of the Great Oaks Foundation is to launch and support a network of charter schools that prepare students for college success through a rigorous tutorial program. The Great Oaks Foundation has replicated the Great Oaks Fellowship model in Newark, NJ, New York, NY, Bridgeport, CT, Wilmington, DE and Baltimore, MD. A select group of Great Oaks Fellows are enrolled in the Teaching Residency program.
We are seeking team-oriented, student-centered, service-minded individuals who share the belief that all students deserve a high-quality education.

Position Summary
Great Oaks Fellows are integral members of the Great Oaks community. Over the course of one school year (August through June), Great Oaks Fellows collaborate with diverse stakeholders to instruct and mentor students, and help develop a community where those students thrive.
As a member of the Great Oaks Fellowship, Fellows are directly responsible for providing individualized instruction, mentorship, and enrichment opportunities to several small groups of middle or high school students each day in a full-time AmeriCorps service position. Fellows serve Monday-Friday and some weekends- an average day lasting 9-10 hours.
To ensure that Fellows meet the necessary living expenses incurred while participating in the Great Oaks Fellowship program, members are provided a modest living stipend, housing (utilities and furniture included) and access to food and health benefits. Members also receive ongoing professional development throughout the year. Fellows will be eligible for an AmeriCorps Segal Education Award upon successful completion of the service term in good standing with the service site (completing 1,700 hours of service for Full-time members and the school year in its entirety). Most importantly, Great Oaks Fellows gain valuable professional and personal experience and acquire skills in civic-engagement, teamwork and leadership during a year of service.
The ideal candidate for the Great Oaks Fellowship is a recent college graduate who is passionate about service and working with youth. Great Oaks Fellows serve in Newark, NJ, New York, NY, Bridgeport, CT, Wilmington, DE and Baltimore, MD.
