About the Program. Seton Teaching Fellows (STF) is an initiative of Seton Education Partners, participating in its mission to serve underprivileged children and give them the opportunity to develop the knowledge, character, and faith necessary to earn a college degree, pursue lives of value and integrity, and become saints.
About Seton. Seton Education Partners was co-founded in 2009 by KIPP Foundation co-founder Scott Hamilton and Teach For America alumna Stephanie Saroki de García to expand opportunities for traditionally underserved children to receive a Catholic education that builds knowledge, character, and faith. Seton does this by strategically infusing creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship, and talented leadership to reverse the widespread decline of urban Catholic education. Seton pioneers new, "break-the-mold" approaches to achieving the academic, character, religious and social justice goals of Catholic education in an economically viable way.
About the position. We’re looking for dynamic, faith-filled leaders who love working with kids, are passionate about serving the poor, and want to help underserved children make it to college and heaven. We’re looking for committed Christians who want to grow spiritually by living in an intentional faith community. We’re looking for tenacious servants who believe every child can learn and grow in virtue, and are ready to develop into great leaders. We’re looking for people who welcome challenges and are eager to lend their talents to making a dramatic difference in the lives of hundreds of children.
