Overview: South Bronx United ("SBU") is looking for highly motivated, energetic volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of South Bronx youth. PSAT/Sophomore skills tutors follow a set curriculum in tutoring small groups (3-4 students) of Sophomores one evening a week to build their fundamental knowledge and skills in English. SBU SAT Prep tutors follow a set curriculum in tutoring small groups (3-4 students) of juniors one evening a week to improve their level in the Verbal/Writing sections of the SAT in preparation for the spring exam (May or June). Tutors will also assist students with homework and NY Regents Exam preparation when relevant. Tutors work with the same group of students week to week, allowing tutors to build relationships with the youth and serve as positive role models in youths' lives, promoting the importance of education.
When: PSAT Sophomore Skills Tutors Mondays 6-8PM; SAT Tutors Wednesdays 6-8PM
1st Semester - September-January
2nd Semester - February-June
Where: Urban Assembly School for Careers in Sports, Mott Haven HS Campus, 730 Concourse Village West, Bronx, NY 10451
Commitment: Tutors are asked to commit to one evening a week for 2 hours for at least one semester. However, if a tutor would like to be more involved, he/she is always welcome.
Training: An orientation at the beginning of service will be run for all tutors to give general guidelines and tutoring tips and to go over the specific needs of the students.
Benefits: In addition to helping provide the resources and support to allow under served students to thrive in school, SBU is happy to connect with your school to see if your volunteer hours can work towards school service or academic requirements.
Beyond Tutoring: The boys and girls participating in the program are also members of the South Bronx United Travel Soccer Teams. Tutors are welcome and encouraged to come out and see a game or get involved in a practice as youth are extremely passionate about the sport and its a great way to connect with the kids.
