Application deadline to join Public Allies Eagle Rock is March 1, and the program begins in September.
The Public Allies Eagle Rock Fellowship provides twelve individuals with an advanced year-long service and leadership development experience at the nationally recognized Eagle Rock School and Professional Development Center, located in Estes Park, Colorado. A full-scholarship residential high school, Eagle Rock serves students between the age of 15 and 21, from diverse backgrounds and neighborhoods around the country, who have not found success in conventional school settings. The Public Allies Fellowship at Eagle Rock is a residential, community-based opportunity for individuals who are passionate about alternative teaching and learning strategies, youth development and empowerment, educational equity, social justice, and re-engaging high-school students in their education.
We’re looking for candidates with a college degree or equivalent life experience, a passion for reengaging high-schoolers in their education, and the enthusiasm to devote endless time and energy as positive role models and mentors for our students. We also look for candidates who have spent time understanding their identities and how these shape their interactions with others, who can demonstrate knowledge and awareness of current social justice issues, and who have taken action towards creating more just and equitable communities. Applicants with experience, knowledge of and skills in the specific content area for which they are applying will stand out, though that may look very different from one person to the next; we value passion and interest along with experience. Eagle Rock is a tuition-free residential high school that serves a very diverse community of young people from across the country. As such, applicants should be culturally competent working with youth from all communities, regardless of race, affiliation, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or ability. As the fellowship is an AmeriCorps national program, applicants must be US citizens, nationals or permanent residents. Each year, we vigorously recruit a diverse, talented and passionate group of fellows to join our team. Through their year of service and development, Eagle Rock fellows gain skills they can bring back to their communities, allowing them to become leaders for change in education and social justice.APPLY HERE
