Safe Passages Summer VISTA 2019
Safe Passages is recruiting 10 VISTA Summer Associates consisting of 2 cohorts, one comprised of eight Associates assigned to Oakland Unified school sites to support summer school activities. These associates will implement project based learning activities aligned with each school's summer programming blending academic and enrichment activities that engage students in their learning process. They will primarily focus on enrichment programming consisting of sports, arts, music and other programs. They will also work with schools to conduct outreach to families and help coordinate and implement summer food distribution programs. An additional two associates will be recruited to work with the Safe Passages Summer Youth Program held at the Safe Passages headquarters. Activities include: lead small groups at a ration of 1:10 to support project-based learning actives aligned with the curriculum including Urban Arts projects; provide one-on one mentoring to specified youth as needed through the program. This may include one-on-one tutoring, discussions to enhance life skills, and general encouragement to them to stay on track to complete school, make positive life choices and to identify dreams and aspirations. Associates will also spend time researching additional resources in which to refer students (such as DMV guidelines, researching academic pathways for employment goals and aspirations identified by youth) and helping to develop individualized youth participant plan that include academic and employment goals as well as road maps to achieve goals, for youth they mentor.
