In 2019, Union Power is partnering with the Kenan Fellows Program for Teacher Leadership to provide an exciting professional development opportunity for one local educator.
Founded in 2000, the Kenan Fellows Program at North Carolina State University advances STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education by providing select K-12 teachers with relevant, real-world professional learning and leadership development, through innovative collaborations with community partners committed to 21st-century education and workforce preparation.
To date, more than 420 Kenan Fellows in more than half of North Carolina’s counties have used their internship experiences to create powerful STEM-connected lessons for over 10,000 students across our state.
Applications are being accepted now through January 21, 2019. The year-long fellowship will include a paid summer internship at Union Power Cooperative that will give a local teacher the chance to experience first-hand, all aspects of an electric cooperative and gain knowledge about electricity and career opportunities in the energy field they can share with their students.
The full fellowship lasts one year and includes 80 hours of leadership building, professional development and a final project implemented during the school year.
With its fifth year participating in the Kenan Fellows program, North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives are helping teachers leverage their internship experiences to create dynamic STEM-connected lessons for more than tens of thousands of students across our state.
Through our partnership with Kenan Fellows, we are providing teachers with real-world professional learning and leadership development.
