INSTRUCT FOR MASTERY – The GO Fellowship, with its intense focus on individualized instruction, changes education outcomes for students. Small group instruction delivered in the context of a supportive relationship between student and AmeriCorps Fellow will result in a significant increase in student math and ELA achievement. Members will deliver on average, over 200 hours of individualized instruction per student – high-quality lesson time that students in other schools do not receive.
MENTOR FOR LEADERSHIP – Fellows have a fundamental role in supporting students in their social and emotional growth. Fellows collaborate with teachers to coach their students to have a personal investment in their success and to build an understanding that they have control over their lives. Fellows help empower our students to evolve into leaders.
DEVELOP A COMMUNITY – Members will help develop Great Oaks schools into positive, holistic communities for students. AmeriCorps members will also develop as people and professionals.
