College Access Fellowship Opportunities!

SAGA High-Impact Tutoring Fellowship

SAGA Fellows are full-time tutors working with students in some of the most disadvantaged school districts in the nation. In our 10-month program, SAGA Fellows help transform these students through daily, personalized tutoring in a program that is achieving extraordinary results. In Chicago, for example, SAGA students gained more than 2.5 years of growth in math in just one year of tutoring.


Fellows serve a year in a Chicago or New York City public school and spend the service year tutoring math, working with the same 14 students every day in groups of 1 tutor: 2 students. SAGA tutoring occurs as a stand-alone class period and is built into the regular school day as an elective course for credit.
