Volunteer opportunity description

Overview:
Regents Prep Tutors work with seniors within the SBU college prep program, 1 on 1 or in small groups, to assist them in completing their high school graduation requirements of which passing the NY State Regents Exams is the main obstacle. Regents exam topic areas cover the core academic subject areas (Math, History, Science, English); however most students primarily need the extra support with respect to Math, mainly algebra, and English. Tutors will work with the same student(s) week to week, providing the opportunity to build relationships and serve as positive role models in youths' lives, promoting the importance of education.

When:
Mondays or Wednesdays, 6:00-8:00pm, January-June

Where:
Boys Prep School Building, Third Floor
192 E 151st Street
Bronx, NY 10451

Commitment:
Tutors are asked to commit to tutoring student(s) in at least one of the regents subject areas, English, math, or history, for 2 hours, one evening a week from Jan – early 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 Regents math, English, or history material 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 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 them.
