Saga Education is a national nonprofit, founded in 2014 and aimed to confront educational inequity to support historically under-served schools and their students. Saga Education has dedicated itself to providing high-dosage, in-school tutoring in partnership with public high schools. Since our founding, Saga Education and our tutoring fellows have served over 12,600 students across Chicago, New York City, Washington, D.C, and Broward County.
Nationwide, students are experiencing a significant interruption in their formal education due to COVID-19 and resulting school closures. While educators and students alike have many unprecedented challenges to overcome this upcoming school year, educators report that their top concern is students falling behind in math. This concern is heightened for educators in high poverty districts who teach predominantly black or Latinx students.
Now more than ever we need talented, caring, and capable people committed to supporting our students in their academic and social development. Finding academic interventions that address inequities that historically underserved students face is one of our nation’s most urgent challenges.

Interested in the social sector & working in Alaska? The Alaska Fellows Program (AFP) is a seven-to-nine month residential fellowship program that nurtures the next generation of Alaska-based leaders by pairing talented young people with strong communities and professional mentors.
Initially launched with a small pool of Yale graduates in 2014, the program now boasts alumni from 28 states and five countries and hosts fellows in Anchorage, Juneau, Sitka — and starting in fall 2020, Fairbanks. Forty-one percent of alumni continue to live and work in Alaska for a year or more following their fellowships.
By attracting young, dynamic professionals to the state of Alaska, AFP arrests and reverses the “brain drain” of young people supersaturating in Seattle, San Francisco, Boston, New York, and D.C. AFP also helps Alaska retain homegrown talent by connecting born-and-raised Alaskans with high-impact opportunities in their home state.
Fellows serve with a dynamic non-profit or public-sector organization for the fellowship term and receive modest living stipends and housing. Fellows live communally, work closely with professional mentors, and make lasting contributions to their host community.

Here is a great one-year fellowship opportunity for a graduating senior (or Feb) interested in Global Health shared with us from a recent alum working in the field in Kenya.
“My name is Zorica Radanovic (Midd ’19), and I’ve been working with Lwala Community Alliance as the M&E fellow since July. Lwala is a community-led organization that is leveraging Community Health Workers to transform the health systems in Kenya and to drive improved health outcomes.”
Organizational Background: Lwala Community Alliance (Lwala) is a community-led innovator proving that when communities lead, change is drastic and lasting.
Lwala village, a small community in rural western Kenya, founded the organization as a response to
extreme health challenges. The region experiences some of the highest HIV, maternal mortality, and
infant mortality rates in East Africa. As such, community members built their area’s first health center.
From these humble beginnings, we are now the largest provider of health services for a population of
over 90,000. The work extends far beyond the original hospital as we support communities in their
homes, schools, and farms to advance their own comprehensive well-being. We address the complex
causes of poor health through a multi-dimensional strategy, which engages community members in
driving their own change.
