2021-22 Pennsylvania Teaching Policy Fellowship, Teach Plus – May 17

Posted by Teach Plus on April 20, 2021

Teach Plus Pennsylvania is launching its teacher-led policy work in Pennsylvania with its inaugural statewide Teacher Policy Advisory Board. Over the course of the 2020-21 school year, the ten outstanding teachers on the Advisory Board will be trained in policy and advocacy specially designed to help them develop the skills to advocate for changes for Pennsylvania students.

You are invited to apply for the Teach Plus Pennsylvania Policy Fellowship, a highly selective leadership opportunity for 30 outstanding Pennsylvania teachers looking to deepen their knowledge of education policy and amplify the voices of teacher leaders in Pennsylvania.

What is the Pennsylvania Policy Fellowship?

  • Fellows expand their influence without leaving the classroom, starting in summer 2021 and concluding in summer 2022.
  • Two in-person training sessions (dependent on COVID-19 restrictions), monthly virtual meetings, and smaller, issues-focused working groups.
  • Fellows receive training through expert-led modules and direct engagement with key stakeholders. No prior policy experience required. 
  • Fellows pursue a policy research or advocacy project that addresses a pressing state-level policy issue
  • Fellows receive a $1,500 stipend for their commitment.

Written application is due by May 17, 2021.
