Writing GuideWork one-on-one with students, helping them kickstart the college essay process with brainstorming and narrowing their essay topic. These are one-time commitments in the spring and winter.
Through an interactive review and edit process, Writing Advisors help students organize, draft and fine tune their college outline until it is a well-written, compelling essay. This is a 2.5-hour commitment during four fall College Workshops (September through December) and through Google Docs.
Academic TutorImplemented to balance the academic challenges of remote learning and reinforce foundational skills, academic tutoring has been overwhelmingly embraced by our students. Tutoring needs for high school and college students include English, all math and science levels and SAT strategy and preparation. This is a flexible time commitment.
Summer Math Tutor
Summer Math Tutors cover the gamut of academic needs: create lessons and learning materials; teach math lessons to curated groups of 5-10 students; and facilitate worktime and on-demand support. This is a 1.5-hour commitment per day for 10-12 days (over a six-week period, late June into early August).
Professional GuideAssist students with a range of activities that support career success, including informational interviews, resume review and interview practice. This is a flexible time commitment.
Speed NetworkingThrough a timed, curated and interactive program, students learn the language and social cues for a professional introduction. This a 2-hour commitment, typically midweek in March.
Career FairThis Career Fair is designed to expose students to a breath of career opportunities and prepare them for professional conversations and inquiries. Baltimore area companies set up an information table and our high school juniors have the opportunity to ask questions, explore their interests and practice professional conversations. Students know this program is for information gathering, not for securing a job or internship. Scheduled for the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving for two hours, this is our hallmark Giving Tuesday activity.
Professional Skills Presentation
Present to our high school seniors about the nuances of professional development, such as networking, time management, initiative and more. This is a one time, 45-minute commitment during the school year.
