In addition to teaching, Fellows help the organization recruit and develop the largest and most qualified pool of instructors in the US. Since Fellows are chosen for their ability to deliver excellent instruction, they are uniquely positioned to provide instructors with ongoing career development. Fellows may also have the opportunity to contribute to projects that build relationships with Juni students and their families.
Responsibilities are based on need, and may include:
- Teaching: primary responsibility. Fellows will spend up to 80% of their workweek teaching.

Each Juni Fellows cohort includes opportunities for large and small group learning and community. Small group Fellows Learning Cohorts meet weekly, giving Fellows the chance to learn and grow in their instruction. Fellows Learning Cohorts benefit from expert facilitation and peer feedback on best practices for teaching. Fellows will come together to learn from leaders across Juni in the monthly “Speaker Series “about how founders and leaders have navigated their professional journey to Juni.
This is a great role for recent college graduates or current college students taking a gap year from school who are looking to learn valuable operations at a fast-growing start-up and continue making a meaningful impact on the next generation.
