The Department of Education & Early Learning’s (DEEL) mission is to ensure that all Seattle children have the greatest opportunity to succeed in school and in life, ultimately helping scholars graduate from school, ready for college, and a career. As part of this mission, DEEL is hosting the Upward Bound program. Upward Bound provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance and graduation. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. Upward Bound serves high school students from low-income families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.
We are looking for multiple temporary Tutors to support the Upward Bound Program in Seattle. In this role, you will be responsible for mentoring, tutoring, and providing instructional aid to support 9th – 12th grade students enrolled in the program. During summer, there is also a role in supporting recent high school graduates in successfully transitioning to college-level coursework and expectations. You will work with the Academic Youth Counselor and Youth Instructors, mentoring students facing barriers to progress through the academic pipeline so they may succeed in high school and beyond. This position will provide you with the opportunity to build leadership skills and gain experience in working with diverse youth from underserved communities.
The Department of Education & Early Learning strives to embed the City’s Race and Social Justice Initiative into its education objectives and seeks staff that value the importance of working together as a government and community to eliminate racial disparities and achieve racial equity. Our core values of equity, results, stewardship, transparency, and collaboration guide our work, support our operations, and hold us accountable.
These temporary positions are classified as a Youth Supervisor 1* and are expected to start on June 2, 2021 and end on August 10, 2021, with the possibility of being extended through the academic school year.
Staff orientations, student orientations, meetings, etcetera may be done remotely, in-person, or some hybrid of the two based on current COVID-19 safety recommendations.
