Partnership for After School Education

Through our Summer Teaching Fellows program, PASE recruits, trains, supervises, and pays stipends to 15-25 college students who provide academic support and enrichment to programs in underserved neighborhoods in New York City.


“I didn’t expect to learn so much about myself and about working with kids in afterschool and teaching.”

Summer Teaching Fellow Alumni

PASE's Summer Teaching Fellows help children see learning as fun and add to their desire to excel in school. For the Fellows, this program provides hands-on teaching experience and exposure to the afterschool field, helping them to explore and cultivate their passion in working with kids.

The Fellows program also blends our college prep and summer learning work by improving connections between community organizations and higher education and cultivating a generation of future advocates for education and the afterschool field. Since 2004, PASE has worked with 212 Summer Teaching Fellows who have collectively impacted over 20,000 kids in summer programs.

What do Summer Teaching Fellows do at camps?

  • Co-teach & provide academic support to youth in afterschool programs
  • Develop and deliver lesson plans on topics ranging from STEM to Literacy to geography
  • Support and lead enrichments such as dance, photography and cooking
  • Facilitate field trips

    “The resources, people, and events that PASE connected me with were tremendously valuable and insightful, and I will doubtlessly rely on them in my teacher career to come.”
