SEATTLE, WA, USA, January 25, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Future Teachers Pathway Fellowship (FTP), a new two-year program designed by iUrban Teen in partnership with Vancouver Public Schools (VPS), Washington State University Vancouver, and Clark College will give recent high school graduates the opportunity to make a positive impact on the next generation.

A series of sharing circles will offer prospective fellows an opportunity to hear from current and recent FTP fellows about what their journeys as student mentors entailed. The 60 minute sessions will be held at the Washington State University Vancouver, Clark College or iUrban Teen office in Vancouver, WA.

Although students thrive under a diverse teaching staff, national research indicates a severe lack of diverse teaching staff nationwide. Deena Pierott, founder of iUrban Teen, says the new program offers high school graduates a taste of the vocation. Future Teachers Pathway Fellowship is a flagship program designed to broaden and enrich the diversity of voices and life experiences represented in K-12 educational settings.

The program also aims to build a much-needed pipeline of educators excited to enter the workforce and make a difference in the lives of children and young adults.

Selected candidates will serve elementary schools in the Vancouver School District. Responsibilities include small group and individual tutoring, providing lunch time and playground support and more. Additionally, fellows will receive training to help them develop professional competency and explore potential pathways in education.

The paid 60-hour fellowship can be adjusted to accommodate different needs and schedules. At its completion, fellows receive $1,000 (approximately $16/hour). Undocumented students are more than welcome to apply as long as they have a valid Washington or Oregon State I.D.

For more information and to apply, please visit the Future Teachers Pathway Fellowship page on the iUrbanTeen website.
