Volunteer Opportunities at UCSD Partnership Schools!

The TMC/CREATE School Partnership Program is seeking volunteers to serve in classroom and non-classroom positions at two partner school sites: The Preuss School UCSD (http://preuss.ucsd.edu/) and Gompers Preparatory Academy (http://gompersprep.org/). Volunteers support students in grades 6-12 at high-needs charter schools, where educators are utilizing innovative and effective methods of shaping positive outcomes for low-income, first-generation college-bound youth.

Available Positions: General categories include: tutoring/mentoring, counseling/advisement, student services, special education, administrative assistance, and health. Classroom tutoring positions are available at both school sites and non-classroom positions vary.

Service Commitment: All volunteers commit to one quarter of service, excluding Finals Week. For classroom tutoring positions, volunteers are required to be onsite for a minimum of 4 hours per week (two class periods). For non-classroom positions, the requirement is 7-10 hours per week.

Transportation: Volunteers are able to take the UCSD shuttle to the Preuss School for free, and volunteers for Gompers Preparatory Academy arrange carpools amongst themselves once schedules are determined.

Application Process: Email Mariko Cavey at mcavey@ucsd.edu for the online volunteer application. All applicants (ANY college and ANY major) are accepted to the program! Submit your application by Friday of Week 1. In some cases, applications may be accepted through Friday of Week 2 (contact Mariko to inquire about exceptions). We do our best to ensure all who are interested can participate.
