The Public Service Center has partnered with the City of Berkeley's 2020 Vision to craft a collaborative Shinnyo fellowship placement that advances educational equity priorities in Berkeley public schools. For the 2020-2021 year, the Shinnyo Fellow will support two 2020 Vision priorities: middle school math and college access. The Fellow is advising Bridging Berkeley, a math mentoring program that sends teams of Cal students to provide homework help and support at BUSD middle schools. The Fellow will also support the dual enrollment program which allows Berkeley High School students to take college courses at Berkeley City College for free. Through this program, high school students earn transferrable college while gaining exposure to the culture and expectations of a college experience. The fellow will focus on recruiting and advising would-be first-generation college students.
The Fellow meets regularly with the PSC Assistant Director and with the Director for three coaching sessions. They will also attend at least one relevant conference (in the field of service learning or peace building) to support their professional development and expand their knowledge and network. In addition, the Fellow will attend the annual Shinnyo retreat.
They will be expected to maintain a service journal (video, audio, written) and to complete a final project documenting their service journey during the Fellowship. This project may be a video, a paper, or a presentation that shares learnings that could be relevant to others in the peacebuilding movement.
