Work one-on-one with students to help guide them to academic success
Volunteers are needed for Student Progress Conversations with students in our On Track 4 Success early intervention, dropout prevention program, now operating in four area schools. A diverse group of volunteers and Spanish speakers needed.
Each student will be paired with a volunteer to have a reflective conversation about their academic performance. You’ll talk with students about their successes and challenges, celebrate their accomplishments and encourage them to stay focused and keep up with their studies.
Each volunteer will meet with several students, and a ½ hour training session will be held at the beginning of your selected session.
The Student Progress Conversations are a great experience for volunteers, but even better, is the benefit to each student. We followed up with students last year, who told us that the meetings helped them tackle attendance, behavior and coursework issues—the A, B, Cs of the On Track 4 Success program—with strong successes.
“I started focusing more on what we were learning. I was more confident, because they [the volunteers] were really nice. Finally, I made sure to complete my assignments.”
