Relay Summer Experience
Relay Summer Experience is an intensive, six-week summer teaching fellowship program. Earn a scholarship and gain valuable experience teaching summer school to elementary and middle school students.
In this program, you’ll spend four weeks teaching summer school after receiving two weeks of extensive training. Over the course of the summer, you’ll teach both core and extra-curricular subjects and experience the power of helping students grow. At the same time, you’ll build meaningful relationships with a diverse cohort of peers committed to personal development, education, service, and social justice.
“I spent almost all my free time this summer in a culture created by intelligent, innovative young people, and for that I am grateful and changed.”
— Madeline Jones, Relay Summer Experience ‘16
During your initial two week training, you’ll learn how to teach, and you’ll be coached and mentored by experienced teachers.
You’ll learn from Relay’s innovative curriculum and outstanding professors how to create an exciting classroom culture, plan and deliver rigorous lessons, and have fun with your students and peers. You will build your unique teacher identity, and your students will grow as a result of your passion and experience.
While learning how to teach young students, you’ll also engage in powerful discussions and team building activities with your peers.
College students will receive a scholarship for their participation in the program.
The Relay Summer Experience takes place in New Orleans, Louisiana and San Antonio, Texas - both cities rich with history, food, and culture.
