Professional Student Fellowships
Weber offers three professional student fellowships in Entrepreneurship, Teaching, and Marketing.
In a joint venture with Rubicon Global and University of Kentucky, Weber's Social Studies department offers an innovative "Social Entrepreneurship" elective. Taught by Social Studies teacher Mark Settles, the course will feature a speaker series with prominent speakers from around the country, onsite internships at Rubicon Global's Atlanta headquarters, and special projects including writing business plans to launch a socially aware small business, and in-depth study of socially aware companies.
Weber Teaching Fellows will provide unique opportunities for personal and professional growth to 10-12th grade Weber students currently engaged in, or aspiring to, teaching and programming roles.
Under the mentorship of Weber faculty, Weber Teaching Fellows will study content and pedagogy that will support their work as educators. Through their participation, Weber students may earn Jewish Studies course credit towards 10th, 11th , and 12th grade course requirements. Weber Teaching Fellows will also provide enrichment that will include visiting local and national innovative schools and programs and meeting with groundbreaking educators.
Working directly with Weber’s Director of Public Relations and Marketing, juniors and seniors will have the opportunity to participate in a mentored work experience as a Marketing Intern. During the internship, the intern will learn the fundamentals of marketing, community relations, data management, and public outreach while developing critical thinking, time management, and interpersonal relationship skills.
