EdP Summer Fellowship

Quarter-long full-time
Education & Youth Development
HSSI Summer Saturdays participants

Education Partnerships (EdP) programs address education equity in our local communities by engaging Stanford students and community youth in tutoring and mentoring relationships. Two of these programs host on-campus summer programs for local youth – East Palo Alto Stanford Academy (EPASA) and the High School Support Initiative (HSSI). We will be returning to on-campus programming this summer, unless otherwise required.

The EdP Summer Fellowship is an opportunity for Stanford students to work intensively as part of a program staff team for two summer programs – EPASA Summer for middle school students, or Summer Saturdays at Stanford for high school students.

The Fellowship

Spring preparation

During the Spring Fellows attend and participate in team meetings, training, and skill development, which is informed by the curriculum from EDUC 102. Fellows can expect to meet at least 2.5 hours a week. The summer portion of the program is a six-week fellowship, where fellows gain experience and skills in:

  • Creating a unit plan and accompanying lesson plans
  • Teaching classes and/or leading workshops and activities
  • Mentoring youth as they develop their socioemotional skills
  • Working with a team to implement an on-campus summer experience for youth
  • Room and board plus a stipend are provided as part of this Fellowship.

Program descriptions

During Summer 2022, we will hire six fellows who will work with BOTH programs. While Fellows can identify a preferred age group (middle school or high school), there will be opportunities for both staff and youth to connect across programs. Please note that while you might not be engaging with youth directly each day, our work weeks will typically be five-day work weeks with Fridays and Sundays being our days off to the best of our abilities.

EPASA Summer Pilot

We will have two cohorts of middle school students. Each cohort will have up to twenty students. 

  • Cohort 1 will attend on-campus program June 27 through July 8, 2022. 
  • Cohort 2 will attend on campus program July 18 through July 28, 2022.

Please note that dates are subject to change slightly as we address our program and community partner needs.

Fellows working with middle school youth will lead academic and enrichment classes two-four times a week, help coordinate community service opportunities, chaperone field trips, and facilitate other youth development work as needed. Fellows' input will be utilized to define the summer experience.

HSSI Summer Saturdays

The high school cohort will have up to 35 students. High school youth will attend the program on four Thursdays and five Saturdays. Ideally, Thursdays will be a day for them to share space with their middle school near peers.

  • Saturday, June 25, 2022
  • Thursday, June 30, 2022
  • Thursday, July 7, 2022
  • Saturday, July 9, 2022
  • Saturday, July 16, 2022
  • Thursday, July 21, 2022
  • Saturday, July 23, 2022
  • Thursday, July 28, 2022
  • Saturday, July 30, 2022

Please note that dates are subject to change slightly as we address our program and community partner needs.

Fellows working with high school youth will lead classes/workshops on college, leadership, and wellness, while supporting youth in making new friends and engaging in community service. Fellows' input will be utilized to define the summer experience.

Through their participation, Stanford students develop mentoring and teaching skills, while gaining valuable insights into the larger social and political issues affecting student performance. Please note that fellows in both programs will have opportunities to collaborate.
