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.
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), Mission (TX), and Paterson (NJ) 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.
To support their work within their missionary year, Seton Teaching Fellows receive a stipend of $12,500, paid in monthly installments, in addition to free housing and utilities. No fundraising is required.
