The Public Allies Eagle Rock Fellowship provides 12 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. We also support schools nationally to implement effective and engaging practices that foster each student's unique potential and help young people use their minds well. The Public Allies Fellowship at Eagle Rock is a residential, community-based opportunity for individuals who are passionate about alternative teaching and learning strategies, social justice, youth development and empowerment, and re-engaging high-school students in their education.

Teaching fellowship areas include:

  • Literature and Literacy (English)
  • Math
  • Music
  • Science
  • Societies and Cultures (History, Social Studies, Sociology)
  • Visual Arts
  • World Languages


We also offer a handful of student services and administrative fellowship positions. These roles support our students, our school and our national mission outside the classroom:

  • Residential Life
  • Health, Wellness and Counseling
  • Human Performance (Phys Ed, intramural sports)
  • Outdoor Education (wilderness trip instruction)
  • Professional Development Center


Responsibilities:

Fellowship responsibilities include in-classroom instruction, curriculum development, out-of-classroom mentorship, residential life curriculum development, and participation in initiatives for national education reform. Allies serve in their apprenticeship positions for a full year, where they create, improve and expand services offered by Eagle Rock, specifically in the areas of youth development and education. Allies participate in a rigorous leadership development program, on-going training and community building activities, and they each contribute to team service projects (TSPs).


Qualifications

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, and who can demonstrate awareness of and action toward anti-racism and social justice efforts. 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.
