Center for Black Educator Development: Paid Apprenticeships for HS/College Students
Background: The Center for Black Educator Development is focused on making our nation’s corps of educators more diverse, more just, and more representative of America’s student body in the 2020s. A large part of their efforts are focused on offering meaningful educator-apprenticeship opportunities to bright, young Black and Brown college and high school students in their culturally responsive, affirming and literacy-focused academies.
Freedom School Literacy Academy (FSLA) Apprenticeship: The Center for Black Educator Development is looking to assemble a team of motivated, energetic high school and college students with a deep desire to drive social change through a career in education. Participants will be trained to give current K-2nd grade scholars an opportunity to boost their literacy skills, strengthen academic confidence, and experience the joyfulness of having their racial identity centered and affirmed through the Freedom School Literacy Academy.
Applicants must be available to work five days a week from Tuesday, June 20th through Monday, August 7th. Rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors: apply here to become a Junior Servant Leader. College students or school paraprofessionals: apply here to become a Servant Leader Apprentice.
