Hopkins High School - Royal Connections Coordinator VISTA
The Minnesota Alliance With Youth VISTA program places members in nonprofits, government, and schools in the Twin Cities to create, connect, and leverage resources to address education inequities such as the opportunity and achievement gaps. We build capacity, coordinate efforts that bridge and build the integration of school and community-wide support for youth, and actively engage youth as agents of change in closing these gaps. Our 20 person cohort meets regularly for professional development, team building, and peer support. This position is placed at Hopkins High School Royal Connections. The Royal Connections program has been providing direct academic support to teachers and scholars since we started the program in 2020. Royal Connections Instructors assist with lessons, read to scholars, and provide remedial 1:1 support. There is also a high need for tutoring within our district’s English Language Learner program (ELL). Peer tutoring can provide a safe space for ELL scholars to practice English with personalized support that is implausible in a regular classroom setting, while making an early connection to another Hopkins scholar to foster a more connected and inclusive community. This has proven to be a vibrant and much needed program. Giving our teachers the extra support in their classrooms and students the extra 1:1 support for those who may fall behind due to such changes has never been more crucial. The services provided by Royal Connections assists our Hopkins community to navigate these uncertain times by providing support for educational success, from the most seasoned teacher to our most vulnerable students.
