Overview: SBU College Prep Tutors provide program youth with the tools necessary to graduate high school and attend college. Senior tutors assist with homework, regent's exam preparation, SAT exam preparations and college and scholarship applications. All College Prep Tutors work with the same group of students week to week, providing the opportunity to build relationships and serve as positive role models in youths' lives, promoting the importance of education.
When: Mondays, 6:00-8:00pm, September - 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 for 2 hours Monday nights for at least one semester (Sept-Jan or Feb-June). However, if a tutor would like to be more involved, he/she is always welcome.
Qualifications: South Bronx United is looking for highly motivated, energetic volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of South Bronx youth. Volunteers should be willing to work hard to help students with finding answers and staying on track.
Training: A orientation and training will be held before the start of the program to provide an overview of the program and start to cover some of the ins and outs of the application process. Further training will be held throughout the year to cover specific topic areas of the application process in more depth.
Benefits: In addition to helping provide the resources and support to allow underserved 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 them.
