Interested in a hands-on tutoring experience through a social justice lens? Learn how to be an effective educator while exploring topics in poverty at Oberlin Community Services.
Those interested in education, mentorship, poverty, or non-profits are encouraged to apply. Tutor support workshops will be provided, so no previous experience is necessary.
Participants will have responsibilities ranging from tutoring struggling students grades 3-8, assisting teachers in the classroom, working in the Oberlin Community Services office engaging with clients needs, becoming a financial literacy advocate and organizer for low-income households, or other organizing/research at OCS. Full- and half-credit options are available.
