Peace Corps Fellows Program

Trans B M.A. in Social Studies with NYS initial certification (32 points)
Peace Corps Fellows Program

The Elliot and Roslyn Jaffe Peace Corps Fellows Program recruits Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) who are ready to make long-term, professional commitments to teach in NYC public schools. Since 1985, the program has recruited and trained more than 800 urban educators. As an AmeriCorps Professional Corps and Fellows/USA flagship alternative teacher-training program, we provide Americorps tuition awards and partial scholarships to select trainees. Upon completion of our summer intensive training, new Fellows teach full-time in salaried positions at the NYC public schools. Invited fellows make a minimum three-year commitment to teaching and all related Masters degree coursework must be completed within this time.
