Student Support Specialists will serve with community-based organizations and/or schools in Archuleta, Dolores, La Plata and Montezuma Counties, providing enrichment and academic services to students during summer programs. They will tutor individual or groups of students, and develop and implement enrichment activities designed to improve the outcomes of students who have experienced increased mental health or learning loss due to COVID. This position may also include family engagement activities such as family education on the use of educational technology. United Way values the diversity of our community. In principle and in practice the diverse nature of our board, staff, and volunteers is recognized as one of our best assets.
