For the 2021-22 program year, the Public Allies Eagle Rock Fellowship will provide 8 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. Public Allies is a national movement committed to advancing social justice and equity by engaging and activating the leadership of young people. Eagle Rock is a full-scholarship residential high school, serving students between the age of 15 and 21, from diverse backgrounds and neighborhoods around the country, for whom having voice and agency in their education is the pathway to success. We also support schools nationally to implement effective and engaging practices to equitably serve all students. Eagle Rock is proud to be an antiracist, social justice organization.
The Public Allies Fellowship at Eagle Rock is a residential, community-based opportunity for aspiring educators who are passionate about alternative learning strategies, social justice, youth development and empowerment, and re-engaging high-school students in their education. The fellowship allows eight individuals to work with high school students as either Health and Wellness Fellows, or as Educator Fellows focused on teaching, programming, and professional development. Through varied experiences in and outside the classroom, Educator Fellows will earn their teaching license. Fellows grow as leaders through training, mentorship, developing curriculum, creating student activities and events, and designing Team Service Projects.
Fellow responsibilities include residential life programming, classroom instruction, and additional supports for students and the organization as a whole. Fellows will learn how to be well-rounded educators working with diverse students, acknowledging that learning happens everywhere, both for students and for instructors.
