Tenacity AmeriCorps Fellows
Become an AmeriCorps Fellow
At Tenacity, our AmeriCorps Fellows come from diverse backgrounds and bring a vast array of skills and career interests. However, they do all have one thing in common – a passion to build a stronger community and inspire change. Your commitment and energy will help close the opportunity gap for students in our Middle School Academy program – leading to college and career readiness and the ability to achieve their dreams. A teaching background is not required. You bring your instincts, strengths, and caring spirit, and we will help you build the skills you need to be successful leaders in the classroom and beyond.
Bring learning to life for middle schoolers in our Middle School Academy program. Tenacity’s whole-child education philosophy teaches kids the skills they need to be successful in high school, college, and beyond.
As a Tenacity AmeriCorps Fellow, you will support students both inside and outside of the classroom, serving as a positive role model and playing a pivotal role in helping them reach graduation and beyond.
Coaching students in life skills, tennis, and fitness is a core part of the Middle School Academy program. Tennis is a great vehicle to help students build soft skills like cooperation, perseverance, leadership, and trust.
