Apply for The Brightest and Most Promising Youth Fellowship Program “Teach For India”!

Deadline: 3 February 2019

Applicants are invited to apply for “Teach For IndiaFellowship Program which is an opportunity for India’s brightest and most promising youth, from the nation’s best universities and workplaces, to serve as full-time teachers to children from low-income communities in some of the nation’s most under-resourced schools.

Through this experience of teaching in classrooms and working with key education stakeholders like students, principals, and parents, their Fellows get exposed to the grassroot realities of India’s education system and begin to cultivate the knowledge, skills, and mindsets necessary to attain positions of leadership in education and identify their role in building a wider movement for educational equity in the country.

Teach For India offers fellows the chance to make a real difference in tackling one of India’s most pressing challenges — educational inequity. The Fellowship will help fellows to develop leadership skills that are critical in today’s dynamic global work environment. The Fellowship Program gives fellows an opportunity to become a part of the solution and a change agent in the society.

How Does Teach For India’s approach to Teaching differ from Traditional Approaches?

At Teach for India, they believe that Teaching is Leadership. For their Fellows and Students to be leaders, they focus on building skills and mindsets through their Leadership Development Journey. The LDJ takes Fellows through 8 milestones in which they explore where their classroom is on the Student Vision Scale, where they are on the Fellow Commitments Scale, what Competencies they need to work on and which Opportunities they can avail of to work on those. This is a cycle to build reflective practice throughout the journey. The Student Vision Scale defines the kind of Academic Achievement, Values and Mindsets and Exposure and Access their students need to have path-changing learning and make them student leaders. The Fellow Commitments Scale defines the three commitments, to Personal Transformation, to Collective Action and to Education Equity that all of us in the movement need to be leaders who will go on to eliminate educational inequity in the country.

Benefits

Teach For India Fellows will be paid a salary of Rs. 19,000 per month.

In addition, Fellows will receive an allowance for school supplies.
