Go Team! Academic Coach - Boys Hope Girls Hope Cincinnati
 
 
 
Go! Team Members support Boys Hope Girls Hope's efforts to reach young people, ages 10-18 who have barriers to school success and college matriculation. Barriers can include poverty and precipitating conditions such as absence of parents due to death, incarceration or abandonment, abuse or neglect, neighborhood violence, substance abuse in the home, homelessness, domestic violence and other risk factors for dropping out as defined by the National Center for Dropout Prevention. AmeriCorps members' efforts will ensure that volunteers and the community are engaged in the important work of moving children in their communities from poverty to self-sufficiency. Working in coordination with up to 4 other Go! Team members and BHGH staff, the Go! Team Member will work in a team at an assigned project site, and focus their efforts on ensuring BHGH Scholars are accruing the skills, confidence and aspirations necessary to achieve college enrollment. Activities will focus on academic preparation, college counseling, co-curricular learning and the development of ongoing opportunities for scholars to better understand cultural diversity through service-learning projects. Additional resources will include boosting parental involvement in scholar activities, and educating and encouraging community collaboration. Members specialize in one of 4 areas that include: Community Resource Coordination, Portfolio Coordination, Academic Coordination and College/Career Exploration. Benefits for full-time members include an annual living stipend of $12,530 (paid every other week over the year of service), training, health insurance, loan forbearance on qualifying student loans and an education award of $5,815 upon successful completion of service. Housing, transportation and relocation costs are not provided.
