The tutoring component of the program will work collaboratively with the school to address the academic, barriers that restrict young people from excelling in school. Creating strong partnerships with teachers, academic counselors and tutors are critical to the success of the program. The program will act as a support to the classroom by monitoring each student’s academic records in an effort to make sure these students are performing at his or her potential.
The Academic Coach will work with a team of volunteers and mentors to create a sustainable after school tutoring program. These volunteers will be recruited from a cross-section of the community. The Academic Coach will be responsible for recruiting and training the tutors, tracking the student’s academic progress and other duties as assigned by the Program Director.
