Position Overview:

The LAB Corps Urban Education Fellowship is an 11-month fellowship that recruits college graduates from across the country. During a year of service, Fellows work with students in small groups or 1:1 tutorial settings to provide personalized academic instruction, in math and literacy, and to support habits that foster academic success. Each year, we look to develop a diverse cohort of dedicated educators and leaders who invest their time and energy in the academic success of low-income youth. The LAB Corps is a great experience for college graduates interested in careers in education, social justice, policy, or those who plan to pursue graduate degrees in medicine, policy, business, or law. 

At the end of their Fellowship year, Fellows may be invited to participate in the Brooklyn Lab Charter School Teacher Residency program – through which participants complete their Masters degree in Education while apprenticing under the mentorship of one of LAB’s Master Teachers.
