Imagine high school students excitedly walking across the stage to receive their diploma, realizing a dream that may not have been possible without you.

ACC’s International CITY program is seeking engaging and committed tutors to work alongside our youth, teaching them the necessary skills needed to achieve this goal. These tutoring sessions may cover subjects such as physics, geometry, chemistry, French, Spanish, English Literature, and world history.

The After School Program Tutor is expected to be dependable as they work toward building lasting relationships with refugee youth. They will also serve as a crucial member of the Youth Empowerment Team aiming to sustain a safe space and acting as a peer mentor as well as tutor. The ideal candidate is expected to be flexible; some nights you may have to be innovative by making a game of basketball a teaching moment rather than going by the books. The Youth Empowerment Team of ACC strives to build a fun, welcoming, inclusive, multicultural environment that represents the youth of the East Colfax neighborhood as well as the families that ACC works alongside.

Schedule: Part-time, 2-5 pm, Monday-Thursday, minimum of two days per week
