About

Metro North ABE is seeking volunteers for the position of Distance Learning Counselor (DLC). The DLC will meet one-on-one with students to discuss the progress of their mandatory distance learning requirement. This position will directly influence learners’ success by providing them a weekly check in ensuring they are on track for their goals.

Students are required to complete three hours of distance learning (six lessons), on their own, each week. Modules must be completed weekly with a score of 80% or better in order to pass the requirement for the week. Often the conversation that the DLC will have with the student will be as simple as, "You met your distance learning requirement for the week, keep up the great work." However, when a student does not meet the weekly requirement it will be up to the DLC to identify areas of success and discuss areas where the student needs to improve in regards to distance learning. The DLC will ensure that the student has a plan for catching up on the distance learning modules in order to stay on track with their personal and educational goals.

Responsibilities include:

  • Meeting one-on-one with students
  • Manage counseling conversations appropriately; Ensure conversations last no more than five minutes
  • Must be firm with upholding distance learning expectations while encouraging students to identify how they will make positive changes as needed
  • Provide teachers with updates on students needing progress improvements

Volunteers are needed:

  • Monday - Thursday evenings from 5:00 - 8:30
