Summertime Opportunites

Hello Community of the Internet,

I came by an awesome project, run by Let’s Get Ready, which is searching for talented, determined, and cool College Students willing to serve youth during the summertime.

Let’s Get Ready (LGR) is a college access non-profit that uses a near-peer model to provide free SAT tutoring and college application assistance to student of lower income backgrounds, helping them to attain their dream of attending college. LGR mobilizes and trains college student volunteers to be the “Coaches”, mentors, and role-models who provide both SAT instruction and college admissions guidance, as well as the encouragement and inspiration that students need to succeed. To date, LGR has served over 10,000 students at sites spanning from Philadelphia to Maine!

Responsibilities include college students committing one night a week at our site located in Queens College, and be willing to become a Math or Verbal Coach; your choice!

Of course there are many rewards and support for such a position, but the greatest is to genuinely impact the future of those from our very own communities.

It is a powerful experience; here is an application link: Coach Application
