WSC Seattle Education Access
 
 
 
Seattle Education Access (SEA) serves low-income residents of King County, ages 16-29. We provide career and academic advising, help with financial aid and enrollment processes, scholarship support, and free tutoring. Many of our students have had a break in their education due to poverty or trauma and are ready to get back on track by completing a GED or High School diploma and making a strong transition to college. We teach students to navigate the higher education system and help them build the self-advocacy skills they need to be successful in that environment. Our students are brilliant, resilient, and inspiring, and our team of staff, volunteers, and AmeriCorps members works together to give them the technical, academic and social support they need to thrive. AmeriCorps tutors provide a critical service by helping our students build their confidence and skills and achieve their educational goals. This position is contingent on funding.

Member Duties : As GED & COMPASS Tutors, Americorps members will provide tutoring to students at partner nonprofit sites in King County. We are currently recruiting four members to serve regions throughout King County with “home base” offices at Shoreline Com.College, Highline Com. College, Renton YouthSource, and Green River Comm. College. Students will be referred by SEA staff member who is providing them with college navigation services. Tutoring will be one-on-one, primarily for GED & COMPASS, but also occasionally college courses & high school completion, & curriculum. Students will meet with the AmeriCorps member 1-3 times per week as needed, & the member will be responsible for creating their own schedule with individual students. This is a great service opportunity for an independent, self-motivated individual with a strong commitment to equity in education. SEA works closely with partnering agencies, members will get an inside look at multiple careers in the non-profit & education fields.
