TRIO Upward Bound
FLC’s TRIO Upward Bound College Prep Program (UB) seeks Leaders to supervise and tutor high school students during our summer residential college preparatory program. UB provides year-round academic and enrichment activities to 50 high school students who come from low-income families where neither parent has earned a bachelor’s degree. The program offers a summer residential component focused on enhancing the academic skills of the participants and provides participants with fast-paced, intensive academic coursework and other social, cultural and recreational enrichment activities.
These are summer live-in, full-time/temporary positions scheduled from May 31-July 3, 2019 (approximately five weeks). Weekends are off but leaders must report back to work on Sunday evening at 6:00 p.m. (for student check in). The Leader position provides experiential learning opportunities for college students wishing to gain practical experience working with youth in academic and social development. TRIO Upward Bound is not just a summer job; it is a commitment to educational equity and an extension of our service to the community. Our mission is not only to increase the number of students who go to college, but to also help shape our participants into future leaders.
The Leader position is to be a priority over all other interests, classes, or employment. Leaders cannot be enrolled in FLC summer sessions II-V, and are discouraged from holding other jobs outside the TRIO Upward Bound Summer Academy when the UB students are on campus (Sunday nights through Friday afternoons, May 31-July 3, 2019). This position reports directly to the Leader Supervisor.
$11.10 per hour (approximately 40-50 hours per week), plus room and evening meal.
