Fresno, California, May 25, 2021…California Teaching Fellows Foundation (CTFF), the largest education sector college internship employer, is accepting applications to hire 500+ college students interested in exploring careers in education, and who have a passion for serving the community and its youth. Teaching Fellow positions will serve K-12 school sites transitioning back to in-person learning along with robust support programs for students and educators at over 50 school districts in Fresno, Merced, Madera, Tulare and Kings counties this fall. Professional training for new hires begins early August, with onsite work starting once the new school year begins. Teaching Fellows are paid above minimum wage and receive training, enrichment and valuable school site work experience. Online applications can be found here:

Driven by its mission to inspire next-generation leaders with a passion for teaching and learning, while positively impacting the lives of youth, CTFF provides important expanded learning support for K-12 students and schools. CTFF connects passionate, diverse and trained Teaching Fellows with school sites to provide supplemental classroom, after school and summer program instruction, tutoring and mentorship.

Teaching Fellow applicants must be enrolled in a minimum of six units at a community college or university and be in good academic standing. Previous classroom experience is not required; CTFF trains each Teaching Fellow to fully prepare them for working directly with school site students, as well as provides site supervisors and reporting measures to help ensure success for all.

“California Teaching Fellows Foundation is committed to developing future teachers and leaders who contribute to positive changes in the lives of students, their schools and their communities,” said Mike Snell, CEO of California Teaching Fellows Foundation. “The work of our Teaching Fellows is not only important to the primary and secondary students they work with, but for their own personal and professional growth. While we look to open the door for a career pathway into education, all our Teaching Fellows regardless of career path will develop key leadership, organizational and interpersonal communication skills that will serve them into the future.”

Teaching Fellows are provided with 32 hours of paid professional development coursework annually, allowing them to continually learn and improve their skills in areas like tutoring, classroom management, and creatively engaging students in learning activities. They also have access to its Dream Initiative that provides additional levels of support to Teaching Fellows, many of whom are first-generation college students, to keep them on the path to graduation, career and life success.

“The Teaching Fellows Scholarship Program has been a critical part of my success as an educator. Now, I am a high school teacher of 10+ years in my hometown of Sanger, CA and currently serve as the Board Chairperson for the foundation that poured into me as a college student,” said Donato Mireles.

In addition to providing approximately 2,000 Teaching Fellows annually to 300+ school sites and programs to supplement classroom, after school and summer program instruction – CTFF also offers independent tutoring services for students who need additional hours of instruction and help on homework through its newly launched platform, My Fellow Tutor. These services can be utilized directly by parents or through participating school districts.

About California Teaching Fellows Foundation (CTFF)

California Teaching Fellows was initiated at Fresno State’s Kremen School of Education & Human Development in 1999 to provide paid early field experience for future teachers that would enhance teacher preparation. Then in 2006, the California Teaching Fellows Foundation was founded as a 501 (c) (3) to further grow the program to meet increasing requests from school districts for expanded learning support. Now CTFF partners with over 50 school districts to staff programs at more than 300 K-12 school sites.

CTFF employs nearly 2,000 college students in Tulare, Kings, Fresno, Madera and Merced counties annually to serve more than 30,000 K-12 students with supplemental classroom, after school and summer program instruction, tutoring and mentorship. CTFF, the largest education sector college Teaching Fellow employer in the Central Valley, provides valuable work experience, professional and personal development through a variety of resources, including the Dream Initiative. Since 2006, hundreds of Teaching Fellows have graduated from its program to become educators in the Central Valley. CTFF continues to play a critical role in helping combat the ongoing teacher shortage crisis in California, by inspiring and exposing college students to careers in education.
