How It Works

About the Program

As a GO Fellow, you will serve in one of our partner schools in select cities along the East Coast, all of which share our mission and values. The key responsibility of Fellows is to provide daily small-group instruction to students in math and/or English language arts and support students’ social-emotional growth during the school day.

Preparing to Serve

With its focus on individualized instruction and mentorship, the GO Fellowship is a rewarding experience. To help ensure you are fully prepared for your year of service, we provide pre-service training, professional development, networking, and social gatherings that will include all GO AmeriCorps Fellows across our network.

Benefits of Service

In addition to training, we also provide GO Fellows with subsidized housing or a housing allowance, a living allowance, health insurance, professional development opportunities, loan forbearance, and other benefits to help support their success.
