Employer Description
 
The Great Oaks (GO) Foundation is a non-profit organization with the mission of launching and supporting a network of charter schools that prepare students for college success through high-dosage tutoring coupled with outstanding classroom instruction. By design, GO’s schools contribute to the vitality of the urban neighborhoods where they are located by attracting and creating social, human and investment capital. What sets Great Oaks schools apart from other college preparatory charter schools is a high-dosage tutoring model provided by the Great Oaks Fellows, a selective cadre of recent college graduates who tutor and mentor every student in the school. This is a crucial strategy in Great Oaks schools to improve achievement and prepare teachers to work in our schools. The Great Oaks Foundation has successfully replicated this program in Newark, NJ; Bridgeport, CT; New York, NY and Wilmington, DE. We have launched a recent partnership with Baltimore Collegiate to launch a Great Oaks Fellow group at the site. A select group of the tutors at Great Oaks are enrolled in a Teacher Residency program that is being conducted in partnership with NYU’s Steinhardt School of Education and Relay Graduate School of Education.
