826michigan Student Engagement Specialist
This position is part of the 826 National Network VISTA Program and is located at 826michigan in Detroit and Ann Arbor, MI. 826michigan inspires school-aged students to write confidently and skillfully in collaboration with adult volunteers in their communities. 826michigan’s writing and tutoring programs uphold a culture of creativity and imagination and support students in establishing strong habits of mind. Through publication and community engagement, the organization provides students with an authentic and enthusiastic audience for their writing. 826michigan’s programs provide an energizing creative outlet for students and meaningful volunteer opportunities for community members. With one-on-one attention from caring adults, students improve their academic performance, develop a sense of belonging, and discover the unique value of their voices. With this understanding in mind, 826michigan provides drop-in tutoring, field trips, after-school workshops, in-schools tutoring, and assistance with student publications. 826michigan also believes that the more fun a student has, and the more directly programs speak to a student’s interests, the more it can help students find the fun in learning. That’s why 826michigan’s programs are more than just extra homework. All programs are challenging and enjoyable, and ultimately strengthen each student’s power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice. VISTA members will have the opportunity to create new systems and enhance current efforts related to volunteer recruitment, training, and retention and support in-school and on-site programming.
