|Tutoring Site Coordinator||https://www.mennonitemission.net/Serve/placements/mennonite voluntary service/United States/532973/Tutoring Site Coordinator||Tutoring Site Coordinator||For Love of Children||<p>
Working at FLOC is like being surrounded by your best friends who are passionate about changing children's lives and work hard to pursue this passion. Nothing beats watching the children you work with learn and develop over the year while the greatest support group you could ask for stands at your side.
-Alex, current Volunteer with FLOC's NTP's program
For Love of Children's Neighborhood Tutoring Program identifies and fills academic gaps for students in grades one through twelve. NTP matches students on-on-one with trained volunteer tutors and uses structured, research-proven curricula to ensure that students gain the fundamental reading and math skills they need to attain grade level competency.
The NTP site coordinator will work with permanent full-time NTP staff to run 2-3 weekly tutoring programs. The site coordinator interacts with a large number of students and volunteers on a weekly basis, ensuring that programs run smoothly and effectively. Specifically, the site coordinator oversees tutors' lesson plans and makes sure they're maximizing tutoring time with their students and tailoring NTP's curricula to meet the needs of the individual child. The site coordinator also inputs data about the student's progress and must be able to communicate with the site supervisor about any concerns that arise before, during, and after tutoring.
This role brings lots of responsibility, but it brings great reward as well. The site coordinator gets hands-on experience with non-profit educational programming, with volunteer management and program coordination, and will get a chance to work with kids of all ages, helping them achieve grade level competency in reading and math.
The MVSer would work collaboratively with NTP full time and part time staff as well as other full time volunteers who serve as additional site coordinators.
