Internship Position



 At Andover on a Teaching Fellowship, the recent college graduate is introduced to teaching by immersion in an academic community.  In addition to their primary educational responsibilities, Teaching Fellows participate in the residential and athletic programs as house counselors and coaches, and frequently are involved in other student activities.  Each Teaching Fellow is matched with a faculty mentor, and attends Teaching Fellow seminars, departmental and whole faculty meetings.  There are on average twelve Teaching Fellows per year.  A stipend of $18,500, medical, dental and life insurance, housing in a school dormitory or house, and meals in the school dining hall are provided.  Fields open to Teaching Fellows include arts and humanities, languages, math and sciences, and Community Service.




 The mission of Phillips Academy's Community Service Program is to develop partnerships between Phillips Academy and local agencies that meet critical needs in the community and provide educational opportunities for students and faculty.  Programs in Andover, Lawrence, and other surrounding communities involve youth and elderly services, housing, hunger, health, political action, recent immigrants, and special needs populations.  The Community Service Office works with over thirty agencies, involving over 500 students and 10 faculty members each trimester.  In addition to a rich spectrum of extra-curricular opportunities, students also participate in  academic service-learning classes, as well as gain valuable leadership experience as one of twenty-five student coordinators.   


 Begun in 1994-95, a Teaching Fellowship in Community Service allows recent college graduates to play a prominent role in running Phillips Academy's extensive Community Service program.  The Teaching Fellow serves as an assistant director, coordinating whole sections of the program by working closely with the Director of Community Service, student coordinators, the faculty advisory board, as well as the faculty and student volunteers and the agencies with which they work.  There are also opportunities for involvement in the academic program with instructors who incorporate community work into their classes.  The Teaching Fellow in Community Service learns how to teach beyond the scope of the classroom, coordinates existing programs, strengthens and builds ties with the community, and helps determine the future of the program as a whole.  If agreeable to both the teaching fellow and the school, the Teaching Fellow in Community Service may be invited to remain with the program and school for one additional year at a higher level of compensation.
