Attention BDS Alumni age 18-24: City Schools is partnering with The Literacy Lab to recruit young men of color for the Leading Men Fellowship
The Fellowship targets young men who are not yet on the path to college but who could benefit from a 1-year intensive college and career preparatory experience.
City Schools is partnering with The Literacy Lab to recruit young men of color for the Leading Men Fellowship, a national initiative which trains and encourages young men of color, ages 18-24, to consider careers in education. The Fellowship launched in Baltimore this academic year and we currently have several Baltimore City Schools alumni serving as Early Literacy Fellows in 5 local elementary schools (Commodore, John Ruhrah, Harford Heights, Lakeland, and Curtis Bay) across the system. Please check out this video featuring a Leading Men Fellow in action!

More About the Leading Men Fellowship
The Fellowship targets young men who are not yet on the path to college but who could benefit from a 1-year intensive college and career preparatory experience.The young men receive rigorous training in early literacy intervention and social-emotional development, intensive ongoing coaching, and work 25-30 hours a week supporting an early childhood education classroom to help prepare children for Kindergarten. As part of this year-long, residency-type program, the young men receive a living wage (currently set at $15/hr.), a $120 monthly subsidy to cover communication and transportation costs, and $2,500 for future education expenses. The goal of the program is three-fold: to diversify the teacher workforce, to prepare the young children served for Kindergarten, and to put the young men on a path to a stable career in education.
