Project Based Learning Coach
Project Based Learning Coaches will serve as project facilitators and guides in the development of a STEAM related capstone project. Volunteers will facilitate lesson plans, created by FLOC, and lead their assigned small group of students through the completion of two projects throughout the school year. This year students will complete a Self-Portrait Series in the Fall and a Podcast series in the Spring.Volunteers will support the development of their student’s leadership skills and demonstrate field knowledge and resources that support their group’s project completion by tracking project progress and providing feedback to enhance productivity. Volunteers should be able to motivate their students to think critically about their project as it relates to the Washington, DC community and their role in addressing challenges/issues in their own communities.
As a PSAT or SAT coach, you’ll tutor a group of four to five high school students in grades 10 through 12 in a variety of concepts as they prepare for these tests. Throughout the semester, Coaches will facilitate fun and engaging lessons that build students’ skills and confidence for the exam. Volunteers will play an active role in lesson plan delivery and student engagement. Staff will provide Coaches with training, resources, and a guiding curriculum to follow, and will also be on hand during workshop to provide support. The commitment is once a week from September through May, with the option to tutor for one semester or the entire school year. Coaches should have a strong understanding Math and Language concepts as they relate to the exams.
College & Career Readiness Coach
College and Career Readiness Coaches will work one on one with a high school senior to support them through the application process for a four-year, two-year or vocational school. Throughout the fall semester, Coaches will work closely with their student to help complete important college application and financial aid milestones. During the spring semester, Coaches help with financial aid forms, scholarship application, and enrollment forms. Coaches also work with students on a variety of hard and soft skills to support their students level of workforce development. Coaches continue to provide encouragement and light-touch support to students through occasional check-ins by email, phone, and text throughout their first year of post-secondary education.
All volunteers will receive initial training and continued support from our staff. Coaches will be provided with resources and a guiding curriculum to follow with the students, and staff will also be on hand during workshop time to provide additional support and training.
