We are in need of passionate coaches to mentor high school students from low-income families who are typically first generation college applicants. As a college coach volunteers will spend at least one day a week, for 3 hours, coaching either verbal or math. Our verbal sessions are on Tuesdays from 5:30-8:30 pm and our math sessions are on Thursdays from 5:30-8:30pm. Lets Get Ready wil provide all the materials and lesson plans!

Our program really makes a difference: LGR students increase their SAT scores an average of 115 points, and 92% of LGR students enroll in college after high school!

For our coaches we will have great bonding activities and create a community atomsphere that is fun and fulfilling for everyone involved!
