Summer Engagement Fellows: Bridging the Gap

As a Summer Engagement Fellow, you’ll fill an important gap in the lives of Minnesota students who are at risk of falling behind. For the three crucial months of summer vacation, you’ll give young people in grades 6 to 12 a safe place to be every day, new things to learn, and the support of a caring adult.

Summer Engagement Fellows serve at aftershool programs, summer school settings and community based programming, primarily in the Twin Cities metro area.  Past Summer Engagement Fellow activities have included:

  • Providing small group academic support to students in key learning areas,
  • Facilitating summer camp sessions and workshops,
  • Accompanying youth on field trips and excursions, and
  • Running arts programming that integrates learning and engagement opportunities.

Spend your summer making a difference in the lives of Minnesota youth!

Not only will you make a difference in the lives of students you serve, you will also be investing in yourself.  Through weekly trainings, you will gain skills and knowledge in areas such as; advocating for change, personal strengths identification, the education landscape in Minnesota, Design Your Life sessions, and more!
