Prenda Guides are coaches and mentors who open Prenda microschools and lead small groups of K-8 students on an academic journey of a lifetime. They come from a variety of backgrounds. They're parents, teachers, homeschool families, and other community members. Guides teach students how to learn for themselves, and Prenda sets them up for success in that endeavor.
Empowering learners is a team effort! Prenda provides Guides with a comprehensive onboarding experience, curriculum, learning model, core values, support, and a community of other Guides. This enables them to focus on what is most important, to open amazing microschools and change kids' lives.
Guides get to create safe and inviting spaces for learning and connection to take place. Most Prenda Microschools are held in a Guide’s home, but we’ve seen all sorts of innovative location alternatives that meet Prenda’s site requirements.
Every community is unique, so no two microschools look the same. Pay is determined by time commitment, grade level, state, and number of students. Most groups of students span three grade levels, but not always. Find out more by selecting your state below.
Prenda is growing, and we’d love for you to grow with us. Whether you have a few more questions or are ready to apply to become a Guide, we're happy you're here!
