College Night Service Position

The Choice Program is a mentoring and monitoring program for youth (ages eight to eighteen) in need of supportive services. Choice is a holistic program that seeks to build self-sufficiency in youth and their families by providing intensive case management support and links to community services.

Tutoring is a very important component of Choice because school represents a significant area of difficulty for many clients on several levels. To address the academic needs of youth in Choice, UMBC tutors gather two nights a week (Monday and Wednesdays, 5-8pm) to provide tutoring and mentoring to the youth who visit the campus for academic support. The youth are engaged for 3 hours each evening; 1 hour is allotted for eating in the dining hall, 1 hour for one-on-one tutoring with a UMBC college student, and 1 hour for a recreational or educational-focused activity.

As most Choice clients have difficulty succeeding in the traditional school environment, College Night gives them a chance to receive individualized, positive attention from a caring tutor in a laid back setting.

As a college student, you have found ways to succeed academically and obviously recognize the value of education as a means to assure your future. Choice clients can benefit from your experience and knowledge in this area!

The Choice Program is seeking energetic and committed people to serve as tutors. It is a time commitment of 6 hours per week throughout the semester.

Responsibilities Include:
-Providing one-on-one tutoring on Monday and/or Wednesday evenings, from 5-8pm.
-Monitoring and participating in recreational activities after tutoring
-Abide by attendance policies regarding absences or late arrivals
-Availability for contact via email or phone regarding announcements and changes to tutoring schedule
-Thinking outside of the box to make tutoring a fun experience!

If you are interested in being involved in this unique opportunity, please contact Michael Jenkins at mjenk1@umbc.edu
