Teaching: the most direct way to change our future

 

Education underpins the prospect of our city. However, the success of our students is still dependent on their socio-economic background.

Teaching has the most direct influence on a student’s future. By helping students realize previously unknown possibilities, they are able to take better future paths, and our society can prosper.

A day in life of a Fellow

Everyday is different for our Fellows, from counseling students, planning lessons with other Fellows, to learning new ways of teaching and bringing students out of their classrooms.

Ultimately, our Fellows are showing their students the possibilities of their potential, and equipping themselves to be better leaders.

Leading Formal Classes

One-third of a Fellow’s day is to lead formal classes. Our Fellows have the freedom to design, conduct and work with students in the classes.

coaching and activities

Fellows lead extra-curricular activities, plan life and career coaching and bring students outside of the classrooms. By building strong relationship with students, Fellows are exposing them the possibilities that were unattainable.

Fellows development

We provide additional trainings for our Fellows throughout the Fellowship. They will not only learn how to better design and lead their classes, but also leadership and communication skills that are invaluable to their future career.
