Description

Public Allies Eagle Rock Fellowship

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.

Additional Benefits

Public Ally members benefit from intensive training, learning, and development. Our leadership training is rooted in our core values: diversity/inclusion, focus on assets, collaboration, integrity, accountability and continuous learning. Training focuses on leading through these values such that they can be effective community builders, with an ability to co-create or emerge community solutions from whatever position they hold--be it CEO, project manager, or line staff. To help them achieve the objectives of their service projects, Members receive skills-based training on asset-based community development, servant leadership, building inclusive neighborhoods, community outreach, collaboration, volunteer engagement, community asset mapping, and project management. To enhance civic participation, Members participate in dialogues and critical reflections to connect their service to larger social issues. To enhance Members self-esteem and self-efficacy, they receive training in topics such as conflict resolution, time management, networking, and giving and receiving feedback--key areas of learning for Opportunity Youth and other adults who lack experience in the workforce. Public Allies sites will be supported by a national training and learning structure offered by Public Allies national office.
