Fellowship Details

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. The Shinnyo Fellow will support college access and awareness. They will work directly with the dual enrollment program at Berkeley City College (BCC) which allows Berkeley High School students to take college courses at BCC 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 a PSC staff adviser for coaching/advising and with a staff member at Berkeley City College who will supervise their daily work.

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.
