Seton Teaching Fellows

Sign up to Love.

Seton Teaching Fellows is a one or two-year postgraduate mission opportunity that brings the living Gospel and the beauty of the Catholic faith to children and families in underserved communities. Fellows rely on both time-tested and innovative methods that help the children and families they serve, as well as their peers, to evangelize with the love of Christ the Teacher. At the same time, they participate in their own holistic formation by accompanying, developing, and challenging each other, striving to serve with the mind, heart, and spirit of Christ the Teacher.

“Each of our fellows sign up to love.”
-Yeime Valle, Chief of Programs

Buckle up and get ready for probably the most exhilarating ride.”

“Come, Holy Spirit…”

“Come, Holy Spirit, teach me how to pray.” I still remember the night this one-liner became firmly etched in my mind. It was a Monday night in Auburn, the spring semester of my junior year. Every Monday night, we had adoration and afterwards, we would listen to campus ministry announcements and have a social hour. After the announcements, the leaders would ask for a volunteer to close us in prayer. On this particular Monday night, after a moment of silence, a young man volunteered to lead. He began with the Sign of the Cross, then said, “Come, Holy Spirit, teach me how to pray.”

Seton Teaching Fellows was founded as a complement to another Seton program, El Camino: an extended-day faith and enrichment program created to serve children in The Bronx. Since its founding, the Fellows program has grown within The Bronx and beyond to Cincinnati, OH, supporting El Camino as well as various Seton network schools.

Fellows are truly modern-day missionaries, impacting the academic, character, and spiritual development of children in underserved communities—preparing them for college and heaven. As a Fellow, you receive incredible teaching experience in a high-performing school, professional mentorship, and spiritual formation while serving others and living simply in a supportive Catholic community.

Three pillars drive the program: Faith, Education and Community


Fellows grow spiritually in their faith through weekly formation, prayer and reflection, retreats, and the Sacraments. In turn, they catechize children in the Catholic faith and prepare them for their Sacraments.


Fellows learn how to become strong educators in a supportive learning community at a Seton network school. Fellows receive continuous professional development in how to be an outstanding teacher.

Fellows live in the community of their placement school, alongside the children and families they serve. Grounded in an intentional, faith-based community of mission-driven peers, Fellows learn how to live for the other. Housing and a modest stipend are provided.
