Cohort A Fellows
Application deadline TBD (fall 2020)
From July – November, EnCorps will accept Fellows for our 2021A cohort to go through orientation in early January and guest teach (volunteering a minimum of 2 hours per week) from January-May 2021. Fellows will work with an experienced host teacher and be placed at a local school. This can typically be done alongside working in industry.
Fellows may then choose from two timelines:
- In the Accelerated Pathway, Fellows begin teaching in August 2021 by either earning a Career and Technical Education (CTE) credential (engineering, information technology, biomedical sciences, etc) simultaneous to their volunteer experience or beginning a Single Subject Intern Credential (math, physics, chemistry, biology, earth science) program in the spring or summer.
- In the Standard Pathway, Fellows will begin teaching in August 2022. Fellows will spend their second year practicing, learning, and building teaching skills by earning a Single Subject Credential in a Traditional or Residency program.
