Since 2000, we have provided high-quality professional development for K–12 educators through partnerships with school districts, community colleges and universities, and industry.
Educators are paired with a mentor organization for three weeks in the summer. The goal is to establish connections between the skills and the content they teach and their applications in the workplace.

Create Valuable Resources
Kenan Fellows create a product related to their internship experience that will drive innovation in their school, district and community.
Fellows have written Project-Based Learning lessons, organized and facilitated professional development for their peers and community events like Ag Days for primary school students. Some have even created educational materials for their mentor organizations.
