About The Empire Fellows Program

In conjunction with Relay Graduate School of Education (Relay GSE), the Empire Fellows program offers aspiring K-12 teachers a unique opportunity to receive high-quality training at a KIPP NYC school. Individuals are paired with a high-performing KIPP teacher who serves as a mentor and advisor for the entire school year. Additionally, Empire Fellows receive extensive training through Relay GSE, allowing for a structured, supportive and more sustainable on-ramp into the teaching profession. Upon successful completion of the residency year, our goal is for every Empire Fellow to be hired as a full-time teacher in their second year at a KIPP NYC school while completing their Master in the Art of Teaching (MAT) degree. This program is best suited for individuals who are passionate and committed to teaching as a long-term career path but who do not have any full-time teaching experience yet.
