Part-time Jobs Supporting NYC Public School Students

| October 9, 2018

We are reaching out to share some exciting opportunities for students to engage with our company as we continue to make a difference in the lives of New York City’s public school students. This year, we expanded our service offerings to our partner schools to include extended learning time programs (i.e. Saturday Academy and after school programs) and our intervention programs (i.e. small group tutoring during the day and college awareness).

 In a city where we have 1.1 million public school students and 1.3 million college students, it is embarrassing to have one of the largest achievement gaps. We understand the potential of college students to change educational outcomes for children – it’s been a core part of our belief system since our organization was started eight years ago on a college campus. Now, we’re working to mobilize one of our city’s most underutilized assets (the intellectual capital of our college students) to change the narrative for low-income kids in NYC.

 We’ve partnered with almost a dozen schools across NYC to provide small group tutoring, Saturday, and college awareness support. All of our positions are paid, and we’re looking to fill almost 30 slots by the end of this month. Students who work with us on multiple engagement will also be eligible for College Tuition Reimbursement.

Programs take place in the morning, during the day, after school, and on weekends. If you feel that you’re particularly well-suited for these opportunities, please email me directly at pedro.rubiano@practicemakesperfect.org for further consideration.
