The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF) provides funding for projects that reduce UC Berkeley's negative impact on the environment and make UC Berkeley more sustainable. TGIF will allocate funds to projects that increase the amount of renewable energy used on campus, increase energy efficiency, and reduce the amount of waste created by UC Berkeley. Portions of the fund will support education initiatives, student aid (via return to aid), and internships. TGIF is supported by student fees and administered through a student-majority governance board.

TGIF is looking for a representative to serve in the Student At-Large position on the 2010-2011 TGIF Committee.

II. Oakland Teaching Fellows Program
Mission:
The Oakland Teaching Fellows seeks outstanding professionals and graduates to become part of this highly-selective program to teach where they are most needed. This program is designed to attract the area’s most outstanding individuals to increase the academic achievement of students in the Oakland Unified School District (OUSD). Oakland Teaching Fellows is driven by the belief that all students can achieve at high levels and that all students deserve excellent teachers. Fellows join OTF to directly impact persistent inequalities in the schools most heavily attended by poor and minority students. Become a Fellow and join the most critical social justice movement of our time: educational equity. Make a commitment to changing life outcomes for students across Oakland.

Following an intensive, rigorous training institute, Fellows will enter the classroom as full-time teachers in fall of 2011 while taking classes to obtain their teaching certificate. Fellows receive a full teacher’s salary, benefits, the support of a network of like-minded professionals, and more. Applications are being accepted immediately. Due to the competitive nature of the program, interested candidates are encouraged to apply ASAP. Help close the achievement gap. Apply now.
