Transforming neighborhood high schools in the inner-city into well-functioning pipelines to post-secondary education will not occur overnight. It will require the brightest, most ambitious minds of this generation. That is why it is our humble privilege to introduce the 12+ Fellow Initiative, a 1-year engagement that opens a channel for recent graduates to transform the culture of inner-city high schools. You will be on the frontline of our mission in empowering our students to dream bigger than they ever have before.


Future education pioneers, foreign service officers, nonprofit leaders, and doctors. They are encouragers, inspirers, and supporters. They come from different backgrounds but are united by their common pursuit of inner-city empowerment. We invite you to join 12+, join the Fellows Initiative, join the movement.




"My experience at 12+ has helped me grow as a person and educator. I will never forget the kids that I have had the pleasure of working with."

Charlie, 2013-14 Fellow


"My favorite parts of being a fellow are building relationships with students and  guiding them toward life after high school."

Jaimin, 2013-14 Fellow



With guided oversight from 12+ headquarters, Fellows will be commissioned to create a college-going culture within our PLUS Center, where they will be staffed full-time and focus on programming, teaching, and empowering students to go beyond the 12th grade.

We challenge you to expect more from the city, our students, and yourselves. We challenge you to join us in showing others that a small group of dedicated individuals can truly change the world.
