Unequal access to opportunity existed long before the pandemic, but these past few years have been especially hard for our most vulnerable kids. The pandemic has disproportionately affected low-income communities and communities of color. We see this moment as an opportunity to start building the education system we’ve been fighting for over the last 30 years: one that allows every child to learn, lead, thrive, and co-create a future filled with possibility. The Ignite fellowship offers personalized learning opportunities with students to move towards that goal.  

As an Ignite Fellow, you will lead small group virtual learning experiences with students with the support of veteran educators. This is a part-time, paid opportunity to build meaningful relationships with youth, accelerate student success and gain skills that propel forward your own leadership. Fellows receive a $1200 (pre-tax) award at the conclusion of their fellowship term.
