Overview:

College Prep Tutors work with seniors within the SBU college prep program, 1-on-1 or in small groups, to assist them in completing their high school graduation requirement to pass the NY State Regents Exams. Regents Exam topic areas cover the core academic subject areas (Math, History, Science, English); however, most students primarily need the extra support with Math, mainly algebra, and English. Tutors work with the same group of students every week. This provides tutors the opportunity to build relationships and to serve as a positive role model in youths' lives while also promoting the importance of education.

When:

Mondays 6:00 – 8:00pm

1st Semester: mid September - mid January

2nd Semester: early February - early June

Where:

Boys Prep, 192 E 151st Street, 3rd Floor, The Bronx, NY 10451

Commitment:

Tutors are asked to commit to teaching on Mondays for at least one semester (Sept-Jan or Feb-June). However, if a tutor would like to be more involved, he/she is always welcome. Many of our College Prep Tutors also volunteer as College Mentors to aid their students in navigating the college application process.

Qualifications:

South Bronx United is looking for highly motivated, energetic volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of South Bronx youth. Tutors should possess a strong grasp of at least one High School subject area and feel comfortable breaking down and explaining processes for problem solving. Our greatest need is typically for people with either strong Math or English skills; however, tutors are needed for all subject areas that are covered by the Regents Exams.

Training:

An orientation and training at the beginning of service will be run for all tutors to give general guidelines, tutoring tips and to go over the specific needs of the students. Additional training and "check ins" will be conducted intermittently throughout the course of the year.

Benefits:

In addition to helping provide the resources and support to allow under-served students to thrive in school, SBU is happy to connect with your school to see if your volunteer hours can work towards school service or academic requirements.

Beyond Tutoring:

The boys and girls participating in the program are also members of the South Bronx United Travel Soccer Teams. Tutors are welcome and encouraged to come out and see a game or get involved in a practice as SBU youth are extremely passionate about the sport and it’s a great way to connect with the kids.
