The Youth Policy Institute is currently seeking a part-time GEAR UP Lead Academic Tutor for its GEAR UP program. GEAR UP stands for Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs, and follows students with programming from their 6th grade year to their first year in college. The group of GEAR UP schools are a combination of charter, pilot, and traditional LAUSD schools located in the Pacoima Los Angeles Promise Neighborhood, whose mission is to transform the communities of Hollywood and Pacoima with a continuum of cradle-to-college-and-career services, and will be a zone of choice for families with a wide range of high-quality school options. The centerpiece of the Los Angeles Promise Neighborhood (LAPN) is an innovative public-private partnership that blends diverse funding streams around a core set of outcomes and objectives.
The Lead Academic Tutor will monitor the after school GEAR UP tutoring program at their assigned school site. The Lead Tutor will also serve as support for 5-10 part-time tutors. Additionally, he/she will assist students in developing the necessary skills needed to master the required grade level standards by providing one-on-one and/or small group tutoring as needed.
Lead Academic Tutor will be placed in middle schools within the San Fernando Valley area where they will work under the supervision of the GEAR Manager.
