Assist Students with Distance Learning

Support families and motivate students, by serving as a "Check-In Coach" with Lesson Check-In. Volunteers lend helping hands to parents and guardians, who may be overwhelmed by the hurdles of distance learning. They encourage students to stay focused and on track, despite the unique challenges of this time.

About the Organization: Lesson Check-In is an initiative to connect middle and high school students with undergraduate and graduate volunteers, who can motivate students to keep up with their distance learning tasks and achieve their personal goals. The organization was founded by young, Black professionals, who strive to uplift students and give back to the communities that raised them. They worried that distance learning would leave many students behind, and they wanted to do something about it. They need your help!

"Check-In Coach" Role & Requirements: A "Check-In Coach" is an undergraduate or graduate student, who is responsible for contacting a middle or high school student weekly to support the student’s academic and social progress. Coaches may assist students with assignment tracking, character development, classroom advocacy, and homework, as needed.

Qualifications: Check-In Coaches must currently be pursuing a college or graduate degree at an accredited institution. We will provide training and resources to each coach, after they are paired with a student. To prioritize the safety of students, we require potential Check-In Coaches to complete an online background check before they are permitted to participate in our program. If a Coach cannot cover the cost of their own background check, then we will try to assist.
