At 12+, we believe in every student’s potential for success. We believe in the power of people to inspire and motivate each other. This is why we take pride in our team, which is available to all students in our partner schools throughout each and every school day. They greet each student on the first day of school and cheer them on through graduation. They are mentors, tutors, advocates, and trusted friends. These are the 12+ Fellows. The Fellows Initiative is an eight-month engagement that opens a channel for impassioned, energetic, and team-oriented individuals to transform the culture of under-resourced high schools. For eight months, you will serve on the frontline of our mission to empower our students to dream bigger than they ever have before.

This Fall, 12+ will embark on an exciting new adventure: we are expanding our services across the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, and opening PLUS Centers in every public high school in Camden, New Jersey.

We challenge you to expect more from our schools, our students, and yourself. We challenge you to be the change. Join us in showing others that a small group of dedicated individuals can truly change the world.


Responsibilities:

Under the leadership of the Site Director, Fellows implement school-wide 12+ programming, with a specific focus on our FLIGHT (post-secondary access) program geared towards Juniors and Seniors. Fellows also plan and execute cross-school, culture-building events such as College Week and Career Day. Most importantly, Fellows are tasked with building personal relationships with individual students, transforming student mindsets, and empowering them to succeed in education beyond the 12th grade.
