Seeking Mentors from STEM, Business/Finance, and Public Service fields/Flexible Commitment
The City Tutors
Due to COVID-19, all mentorship has moved online. In-person mentorship will resume once it is safe for mentors to commute. If you are interested in providing online or in-person mentoring to populations needing assistance, please let us know.
The City Tutors (thecitytutors.com) seeks mentors from the fields of science, engineering, technology, finance/business, public service to support a Vocation course at City College of New York for the S J Levy Fellowship.
"The S Jay Levy Fellowship for Future Leaders is a program developed with the idea of taking down barriers, pointing a few arrows and letting people really use their talents to advance their careers."
The mentor would have the following responsibilities:
Schedule at least one half day meeting on-campus to meet with 15 fellows in small groups and/or one-on-one sessions.
Mentors will participate in once a semester (2x per year) group meetings with Executive in Residence (remote or in-person).
Further engagement of the mentor-mentee relationship:
In-person: meetings would take place on-campus or in a place of business.
Remote: Follow up and respond to subsequent fellow outreach via phone and email.
Fellows would have responsibility for engaging in the initial meeting with designated mentor as a portion of their grades in Fall VOCATION course. Fellows would be encouraged to be pro-active in reaching out further and growing the relationship.

The City Tutors mission is to use tutoring as a means to increase community engagement and cultivate community members' professional growth.
We are the tutoring program for CCNY's Colin Powell School and a community organization that serves programs across 4 of the 5 boroughs. Currently we provide in-class tutors to support adult education programs at 5 CUNY schools, including CCNY, BMCC, LaGuardia, City Tech, and Hostos (and its extension campus, CUNY in the Heights). We are also partnered with five non-profits that provide high school equivalency support to the populations they serve: Childrens Aid Society, Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corp, Henry Street Settlement, Goddard Riverside Community Center, and (through the Department of Youth and Community Development) Moshulu Montefiore Community Center. Outside of adult education, we work with housing projects, high schools, and a nano-tech lab. For most of our opportunities, we put tutors in classrooms where they are collaborating with an instructor to support students. We also do one-to-one and small group tutoring. We tailor the support to the needs of the site. We are a great place to tutor if you are in college, a working professional or a retired professional.
