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.

About The City Tutors
92-24 Queens Boulevard, Rego Park, NY 11374, US
The City Tutors (CT) is a NYC wide volunteer tutoring and mentoring hub that ensures historically underserved communities have equitable access to resources that are fundamental to educational and professional success.
Our vision is to create a hub where any New Yorker can leverage their academic and professional skills and content knowledge to uplift their community and where disadvantaged communities can access resources that they need.
We see tutoring as a way to empower individuals to work in the community. We provide flexible times, convenient locations, and meaningful experiences, allowing more community members to participate and to support community partners for longer.
We believe tutoring must be a reflective act that both helps strengthen individuals' support of others and helps individuals better understand themselves. We provide our tutors with access to industry mentors who help connect the work they are doing with us with what they've done in the past and what they want to do in the future.
We believe in leveraging the workforce skills of our community of volunteers by pairing those in need of professional support with industry experts who can provide insight into specific fields and feedback on professional documents.
We see the City Tutors as an opportunity to bring people together under a common purpose. We want like-minded individuals to feel they are part of a fellowship, to build their network with people within their discipline, and to expand the disciplines and industries they've been exposed to.
