Summer Opportunity for Juniors

Last summer, English major Chidimma Uwalaka  completed an “amazing” fellowship in Brooklyn, New York, and she is now a Campus Ambassador for Uncommon Schools, a charter management organization that “starts and manages outstanding urban charter public schools that close the achievement gap and prepare low-income students to graduate from college.”  She asked that we share the following information about a position with Uncommon Schools.

From Chidimma:
Are you a college junior passionate about urban education and school reform? Know someone who is? If so, APPLY to the 2016 Summer Teaching Fellowship here, and encourage your peers to do the same. The application deadline is quickly approaching; March 4th is the last time to submit for this amazing opportunity to teach deserving students, earn a paycheck, and live in an awesome city for FREE! For more information, feel free to contact me via email at cuwalaka@villanova.edu. As a 2015 alumna of this amazing fellowship, I am more than happy to answer any questions and help with the application process!
