Seton Teaching Fellows

Sign up to Love.

Loving and evangelizing each person before us, with the heart, mind, and spirit of Christ the Teacher.

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.”

Overview

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

Faith

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.

Education

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.

Community

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.
