Practice Makes Perfect (PMP), a NYC-based organization that partners with schools to provide academic summer programming for students in high-need communities, is seeking highly motivated sophomore, junior, and senior undergraduates and graduate students to serve" as their PMP Teaching Fellows.
"PMP’s intensive five-week program uses an innovative near-peer mentorship model that pairs struggling students in grades K-8 with high-achieving role models from the same community. Our competitive fellowship places students with an interest in education and a passion for narrowing the achievement gap in front of these classrooms in the schools that need them the most. PMP Teaching Fellows will undergo comprehensive training that prepares them for the rewarding responsibility of leading a classroom and will receive one-on-one support from a NYC-certified teacher throughout the summer. Our Teaching Fellows are instrumental in combating the summer learning loss and narrowing the achievement gap in NYC. This is a paid position."
