Are you looking for a way to have a positive impact on the community while working to close the opportunity gap in Denver Public Schools?  Denver Fellows offers two unique tracks that allow community members from all backgrounds to get involved.  Please read below to find out about the Denver Fellow position and the Denver Fellow Residency!

Interested in becoming a Denver Fellow?

The Denver Fellow positions provide an ideal service year for recent college graduates from any major, career changers considering teaching and retirees from a range of fields. Fellows commit to one school year of work focused on accelerating students’ academic growth in math or literacy. After the program, many fellows go on to further their own education, lead classrooms or pursue careers in public service.

Why become a Denver Fellow?

Not only will you gain practical and professional skills and experience, but you will be changing the lives of students in our community. This program’s model allows fellows to provide individualize learning while building relationships with students that helps them to develop social and emotional skills.

Interested in becoming a Denver Fellow Resident?

Looking to pursue a teacher licensure?

In partnership with the Relay Graduate School of Education, the Denver Fellow Residency program allows aspiring teachers to earn a master’s degree in teaching and a Colorado teaching certificate while working with some of our highest needs students. This prestigious, paid, two-year fellowship immerses Fellows in intensive training through coursework and deliberate practice with a gradual on-ramp into teaching. Supported by an experienced teacher, fellows work with small groups of students before stepping into the classroom full-time during their second year of the program.
