Community Engagement Fellowship


Community is the heart and soul of Fiveable. The Community Engagement Fellow will help cultivate an audience that is eager to learn and connect passionate students to dedicated teachers who are masters of their craft. The fellow will also develop a modern platform where users can discuss and engage on a variety of topics inside Fiveable. In addition, you will help facilitate and moderate discussions by developing dynamic systems and processes for each. Finally, customer happiness is crucial to Fiveable’s success. You will help improve upon our current phone, live chat, and email support systems to ensure optimal response rates and times are achieved. This fellowship is an opportunity to gain experience in community management and education technology while also developing skills in networking, event planning, and customer success.

Please note: This work will be done onsite at the Fiveable Fellow House + incubator in Milwaukee’s East Side.
