Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Recruiting Organization: South Bronx United, Inc.

Overview:

SBU Academy College Prep Tutors work with small groups of Sophomores, Juniors, or Seniors in providing them with the academic support needed to graduate high school and go to college. Tutors for Sophomores and Juniors follow a set curriculum developed by SBU in teaching weekly lessons in either math or English, while also helping students with school homework and Regents exam preparation. Senior tutors assist with homework, regent’s exam preparation, SAT exam preparation, 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:

Sophomore: Mondays and Wednesdays 5:45-7:45pm

Juniors: Mondays and Wednesday 5:45-7:45pm


1st Semester: mid September - mid December

2nd Semester: early February - early June


Where:

Boys Prep, 192 E 151st Street, 3rd Floor, The Bronx, NY 10451

Commitment:

Tutors are asked to commit to teaching either English or Math for 2 hours, one evening a week for at least one semester (Sept-Dec 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. Tutors should possess either strong math or English skills, and feel comfortable breaking down and explaining processes for problem solving. Tutors should also be willing to review the provided weekly math or English lessons beforehand so that they are prepared for working with the students.

Training:

An orientation and training at the beginning of service will be run for all tutors to give general guidelines, tutoring tips and to go over the specific needs of the students. Additional training and "check ins" will be conducted intermittently throughout the course of the year.

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 SBU youth are extremely passionate about the sport and it’s a great way to connect with the kids.
