ORGANIZATION: STUDENT U

  • 10 people are interested

Thank you for your interest in working with our middle and high school students! Student U is a community organization that works to empower and equip first-generation college students in Durham Public Schools, their families, and educators.

During the school year, we host tutoring for our middle and high school students throughout the week. This year we will continue operating using our hybrid model. We will host:

1. In-person tutoring on Monday-Thursday during our Year-Round Program for our middle school students.

2. In-person tutoring on Tuesday and Thursday evenings for our high school students at the WG Pearson Center.

3. Virtual tutoring on Monday and Wednesday evenings via Zoom. Virtual tutoring is organized using Zoom breakout rooms and students have the option to work 1-on-1 with a tutor, in a small group session, and/or with peer groups.

The main goal for our tutors is to help our students both complete and understand their homework. It is imperative that we have volunteers throughout the week during ALL of the allotted times. We are asking volunteers to commit to tutoring at least one day per week. On average, our volunteer tutors volunteer at least 1-2 hours per session. We look forward to working with you!

Mission Statement

Student U's mission is to empower and equip first-generation college-bound students in Durham Public Schools, their families, and educators to become the leaders that will transform our city.

Description

Student U is a community organization that uses the power of education to build a just and equitable Durham.

Every person is worthy of opportunities that help them grow and thrive throughout their educational journey. Unfortunately, this is not our current reality: structural racism, intergenerational poverty, and other injustices create significant personal and institutional barriers to success for entire communities across the U.S. and here at home in Durham, N.C.

However, these challenges don’t tell the full story. Within an educational system that fails to allocate resources equitably, Student U sees brilliant students and engaged families who know that they’re capable of incredible things-and we’re here to walk alongside them. In order to break the cycle of poverty and help shape a new future for our city, we support first-generation students through middle school, high school, college, and beyond.

We empower and equip first-generation college students in Durham Public Schools, their families, and educators to become the leaders that will transform our city for the better. We support this transformation with an approach that combines three key elements: our whole-families approach to college access and success programming; sharing our best practices in education; and our commitment to supporting student- and family-led advocacy and change efforts in our city. Together, we’re creating a Durham where all students succeed.
