Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Access Youth Academy, a 501(c)(3) youth enrichment program, partners with The Preuss School UCSD to serve 50 students from low-income communities in San Diego. Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty by providing the necessary supports to apply and graduate from a four year university. We accomplish this by empowering youth to excel through our program combining academic support, community service, and the sport of squash.
Access Youth Academy needs tutors from 3:00 to 5:00pm (1 hour commitment or 2 hours), Monday through Friday, at RIMAC on the UCSD campus.
Our students range from 7th to 12th grade, so the Math levels vary. (Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Calculus, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus). Becoming a tutor is a great way to get involved with the communities of San Diego and provide academic support for youth from low-income families. It is also a great opportunity to gain experience working with youth in an educational environment.
