LAUNCH Middle School Tutor Fall 2018
NOTE: The LAUNCH Middle School Program is held at Grace Mission, 303 W. Brevard Street
The Fall LAUNCH program begins Tues, September 18, 2018
We are about to LAUNCH with our Middle School students!!
Thank you for signing up to go on a wonderful adventure in learning with with our LAUNCH students from Griffin Middle School. These are young people who have been working hard on improving their academic skills and your leadership will only serve to enhance those skills.
You will help them with homework in mathematics and reading (specifically in comprehension and retention).
You will also be a positive role model, teaching them to complete assignments and grow their self-confidence. You will need to be direct and assertive, keeping them on track and focused. We will provide enrichment activities and supplemental creative play for when homework is finished! Your willingness to engage one-on-one with a student who is struggling academically can mean the difference between failure and success!
The program begins again on Tuesday, September 18, and you may begin tutoring as soon as you have signed up on-line on SignUpGenius. Once registered, you will be contacted by Chassidi Jenkins, our FSU Ambassador, or Pastor Jenni Liem, with information about tutoring. Tutors must complete "Safeguarding God's Children", a required two-hour sexual abuse prevention on-line class, during their first two weeks of tutoring. Once you've completed this class you are certified for five years and will not have to repeat this class during your volunteer experience.
Tutoring for LAUNCH is from 4:00-5:30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Grace Mission (303 W Brevard St). You can sign up for Tuesdays, Thursdays, or for both days. All materials are provided. Dinner is served at 5:30 and you are welcome to stay and eat with us. When you arrive at Grace Mission you will be welcomed to the tutoring space and oriented to the materials we have available. Enrichment and creative play materials will be set out for your students to use as they complete their homework.
