    Position Description


    After a year of isolation, are you looking for a dynamic summer experience? If so, consider applying to join a community of 300 undergraduate and high-school students across the country who will be teaching either virtually (from any location with WiFi) or in person in Denver, Providence, or Western MA.

    Following two weeks of community building, practice teaching, and collaboration, you will teach rising 5th-8th-grade students law, math, or reading for six weeks. You will laugh, learn, lead, and grow. A professional teacher will observe you every day and coach you as you reflect and grow.

    It has been a challenging year to be apart; join us this summer in our vision of ending racial injustice and inequity in education by co-creating loving communities where generations of students, teachers, and leaders learn, grow, and develop. As an AmeriCorps Member, you will receive a total scholarship of $2,800. Learn more through this flier, listen to reflections from past fellows here, and apply here today. The final deadline is May 5. Your kids, colleagues, and coach are waiting!

  • About Us

    The vision of Generation Teach is to end racial injustice and inequity in education. Our mission is to co-create loving communities where generations of students, teachers, and leaders learn, grow, and develop.

    We partner with districts and charter schools to: 1. Engage middle-school students in summer learning. 2. Invest undergraduate and high-school students in teaching. 3. Develop professional teachers as leaders.

    We facilitate learning experiences that center the history, stories, and strength of people of color and provide all participants with windows and mirrors of their own lived experiences. On average, our summer teaching fellows are: - 75% people of color - 60% Black and/or Latinx - 75% local - they grew up or attend college in our communities - 40% First Gen

    At Generation Teach, we are on a journey to increase our consciousness, develop as antiracists, and become better allies and ancestors. Since 2014, we have co-created learning communities where over 4,000 5th-8th-grade students, 960 undergraduate and high-school students, and 240 professional teachers have learned, grown, and developed.
