Join Our Team! AmeriCorps Members serve here.
We proudly host a corps of AmeriCorps Members, completing a year of service as part of our Education Fellows. Many of these individuals often remain in the same cities where they work after their year of service, which positively impacts our schools and communities for years to come.
What Sets Us Apart
We believe every child needs a champion—a mentor. In addition to regular classroom instruction, our team focuses on building formative relationships with each individual student. In our middle school, students receive high-dosage tutoring from our Great Oaks Fellows, a dynamic group of recent college graduates and aspiring educators who dedicate a year of service to the Wilmington community. As they grow into young adults, we connect our students with leaders and mentors in their community. As champions, we strive to provide guided support for students to envision their future, navigate their journey, and achieve their dreams.

Building Relationships In Delaware Grows Everyone
We are community-focused with a dream to build a bridge between our school and the Delaware community; we aim to help everyone grow by empowering our students to be the change they want to see in their communities. One way we do this is by encouraging our students to take ownership of projects that solve problems in their communities, such as cleaning up parks, food drives, clothing drives, and more.
Join Our Family Tree
Our mission is to create a safe, effective, and innovative learning environment that enables each individual to reach their greatest potential through a high dosage of mentorship. At Great Oaks, we are a family. Let’s grow together.
