Volunteer Description:

ASP tutors meet weekly with students enrolled in nearby elementary schools, who are residents of Tassafaronga Village, and are enrolled in the after-school program.

  • Tutors must have superior knowledge of various academic areas (english, Math, Reading, Science)
  • Farm or gardening knowledge is a plus!
  • Be highly motivated and passionate to work with low income youth and help prepare students for academic success
  • Ability to effectively communicate with children in different settings, group and individual
  • Understanding and patience is a must.



Qualifications:

  • Current student working toward a BS/BA
  • Experience working with youth including paid and volunteer positions
  • Experience working with diverse youth
  • Bi/multilingual students (preferably Yemeni-Arabic or Spanish)
  • Individuals with backgrounds similar to target population (low-income and first in their families to attend college) are strongly encouraged to apply.


Schedule -- MTuTh, 2:30pm - 5:30pm; W, 1:00pm - 5:30pm. We ask for a weekly commitment of 4-6 hours. Consistency is VERY important to the ASP students and staff.

This is an unpaid position, but we can provide school credits, service hours, and work out transportation stipends.
