College Prep Senior Mentor--2022-23 School Year

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: South Bronx United, Inc.

Overview:

SBU College Prep Mentors provide program youth with the tools necessary to graduate high school and attend college. College Prep Mentors are matched with 2-3 SBU high school seniors as they prepare for senior year exams and navigate the college application process. Mentors focus primarily on assisting with applications, but may be called on to provide support with SAT/ACT and Regents exam preparation. Mentors promote the importance of education and serve as positive role models in youths' lives.


When:

Wednesdays, 6:00-8:00pm, September - June


Where:

Boys Prep School Building, Third Floor

192 E 151st Street

Bronx, NY10451


Commitment:

Tutors are asked to commit to one evening a week for 2 hours for the entirety of the school year (Sept-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 have gone through the college application process themselves, with a preference for those who have already obtained a bachelor's degree. It's not expected that tutors will be experts on the process, but they should be willing to work hard to help students with finding answers and staying on track throughout the process.


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 the kids.
