SUM Associate, VISTA Horizons Student Enrichment Program GSF
Horizons at Greene Street Friends School is a longitudinal summer enrichment program serving students from under-resourced public schools in Germantown. Our program prevents “summer slide”, a term that refers to the academic regression that occurs over the summer months. Students from underserved communities, like Germantown, are particularly vulnerable to summer slide due to lack of access of quality educational programming and a decline in exposure to learning opportunities once summer break begins. HGSFS helps to close this opportunity gap by offering a rich 6-week experience for low-income students. A longitudinal program, students begin HGSFS in kindergarten and return each year through eighth grade, creating an opportunity for deep, long-term relationships with students and their families. This is an opportunity for motivated, committed individual who is passionate about social justice and equity in education. The ideal candidate will have volunteer experience serving young people who come from under-resourced communities, as well as a mindset that embraces cultural, racial, social, socio-economic diversity and the various ways these identities intersect within the learning experience of young people. A desire to ask questions, receive feedback, and learn quickly are ideal.
