Academic Success Facilitator

I am assisting students in their recovery of class credit, through an online program called APEX. Due to the several classes that are going on simultaneously, it is difficult for me to give the needed one on one attention. The responsibilities of the tutors would be to pull the student(s) aside for 30-40 minutes in order to help them study the concepts before their subsequent quizzes. The goal is that each scholar completes at least one quiz each school day.

Topic: Fostering active citizenship within community Website:

Description:

In this election year, our students have been researching the concepts of community, and citizenship in a community. Students have been exploring the various ways a person can be an active member of a community, and how that involvement, or lack of involvement, impacts both the individual and the community. They have analyzed data demonstrating changes in community involvement, and conducted interviews with a variety of community members. Groups of students will be presenting their creative ideas for persuading others to become more involved in the community around them. They would like to receive feedback on both their creative ideas, and on their use of persuasion.

The groups whose presentations are most effective will be putting their ideas into action at Northglenn’s Community Involvement Fair, to be held Saturday, November 5. At this event, to be held in the STEM facility, from 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m., our students will share their ideas with our guests from the public, and hopefully, persuade many people to become more involved in the community-based groups, committees, and activities that they have researched.

Program Volunteer/Tutor during the school year

Program volunteers and program interns are needed to provide homework assistance and help facilitate enrichment activities. Program volunteers meet with Dreamers at one of our after-school learning centers and will help students academically: finishing homework & promoting educational activities such as reading, writing, etc. when homework is finished. Volunteers/interns are not assigned to one specific student, but rather help in small groups and wherever needed.

Roles vary from site to site depending on the age of the Dreamer class. With older Dreamers, the focus is on homework completion whereas with younger Dreamers the focus shifts towards leading math and literacy workshops and more enrichment activities like art, sports, social/emotional groups, music, relaxation techniques, journaling, finance groups, and more. Volunteers are encouraged to build a personal relationship with the students. Program volunteers are asked to make a once-per-week, one-semester/summer session commitment and will meet with Dreamers sometime between 2:45 – 6pm depending on the site. Interns are asked to be present at the site 2 or more days each week during the semester/summer session. Initial orientation training and a tutor handbook will be provided.

(This is just one volunteer type we offer. Please see our site for more opportunities)
