Ready to Achieve Mentoring Program (RAMP) Mentor

We are looking for individuals to come to our sessions once a week throughout the 2016-2017 school year. We are at multiple high schools and each has its own specific schedule for RAMP sessions. A typical RAMP session is an hour long and we try to make it as enjoyable as possible while still being able to complete tasks. The session includes an icebreaker, goal setting and a topic related activity. Our mentors work in one on one, small group and classroom settings depending on the topic of the session and who they are matched with. Over the course of the year the mentors work with the youth to develop weekly goals and complete what is called the Individualized Mentoring Plan (IMP). The IMP is four paged document separated into six sections called learning, connecting, thriving, leading, working and disability. The mentors work with mentees to recognize their strengths, what they need to improve, what they can do and what the mentors can do to assist them in each of those areas. In addition to these core components we schedule field trips, arrange for guest speakers, find job shadow opportunities, host mock interviews and plan family engagement events throughout the year.

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.
