ABOUT THE GREEN FELLOWSHIP
Who We Look For
The Green Fellowship leverages both the diverse and seasoned perspectives of its’ educators as well as top leaders in our communities. Experienced educators, including Teach For America alumni, who have demonstrated meaningful impact and success inside and/or outside of the classroom are invited to apply to the Green Fellowship. During our admissions process, which includes a detailed application and interview, candidates will share about their experience in education, impact in their school and local communities, and vision for their own professional growth. We are striving to build an inclusive, diverse, and equity-minded cohort committed to driving impact with students and investing in the communities of our Green Fellowship regions. Each region has their own unique context and story, which inform their strengths and needs. You can meet with our team to learn more about the specific qualifications for each of our regions.
Our cohort structure allows you to learn from a group of engaged and talented peers who are equally committed to developing the group in addition to individual leadership. Green Fellows are supported at an individual level through coaching, as well as a regional and national level through Teach For America programming. Regional and National Green Fellow programming includes the opportunity to learn from leaders in education, politics, social justice, business and other industries, as well as to network with key changemakers in your community. Finally, Green Fellows receive a $10,000 financial award annually, along with job placement in one of our partner schools and relocation assistance.

While leading at their respective schools, Green Fellows participate in monthly leadership development to grow in their leadership. Learning together and from stellar leaders in education and their communities, Green Fellows build on their personal and professional leadership development. Through this development, Fellows will extrapolate best practices of leadership and further sculpt their personal theory of change through engagement with a diverse population of next generation leaders in an intimate, informal setting. In addition to receiving excellent development from Teach For America, each Fellow is awarded a $10,000 award (note: this is taxable).
