Denver Fellows


Give A Year, Change A Life!

Denver Fellows provides an ideal service year for recent college graduates from any major, career changers considering teaching and retirees from a range of fields. Fellows commit to one school year of work focused on accelerating students’ academic growth in mathematics. After the program, many fellows go on to further their own education, lead classrooms or pursue careers in public service.

Not only will you gain practical and professional skills and experience, but you will be changing the lives of students in our community. Fellows provide individualized learning experiences for students while building relationships to ensure each student realizes their full potential.


Denver Fellows is an urban education math fellowship in Denver, Colorado. Students receive individual support in math as part of each school day and fellows are provided a meaningful service year opportunity. Many fellows utilize the service year as a pathway into teaching or as a gap year prior to furthering their own education. Only math fellowships are available for the 20-21 school year.


Our mission is to close the opportunity gap by providing small group math instruction for our highest need students in order to accelerate their academic growth in preparation for college and career.

The video references the Denver Literacy Program, however the literacy program was discontinued at the end of the 2018-19 school year. Fellowships in literacy are no longer available.

My favorite thing about being a fellow is getting the opportunity to work with students who bring so much diversity to the classroom. They bring diversity within their passions, humor, style, and interests. Every day is so exciting because of this.

Denver Fellows seeks to attract educational leaders committed to a year of service in order to eliminate opportunity gaps and provide students with access to small group instruction in math. We value team members from all races, ethnicities, economic backgrounds, sexual orientations, genders, physical abilities, political and religious beliefs. Fellows work directly with students every day and in the small group context and have an incredible opportunity to get to know individual students in order to build influential mentoring relationships to motivate and support student growth.

Increasing the diversity of our fellow corps and team is critical to our ability to close opportunity gaps and provide a high quality experience for our students. We work to foster a culture of inclusiveness in our daily interactions as team members and with students in a way that values individual contributions, opinions and experiences. We believe that a culture of inclusivity empowers the creative capacity of each individual that is born from their distinct life experiences.

We value each individual who commits to a service year with Denver Fellows and is a member of our team working toward a common mission and vision. At the same time, we place a particular emphasis on a fellow corps and team that reflects the racial and economic backgrounds of the students we serve.

In terms of race we place significant focus on ensuring the representation of Latino and African American individuals given that more than 90% of the students we serve share these backgrounds.

We emphasize corps and team member diversity in order to increase our positive impact on students and student outcomes.
