What

Futures Academy, a partnership with Colorado Youth for a Change and Aurora Public Schools

Futures Academy serves students ages 17 to 21 who have too few credits to receive a traditional high school diploma but are interested in furthering their education and pursuing post-secondary opportunities.

Tutors at Futures Academy will support individuals and/or small groups of students with learning experiences in Math, Social Studies, and/or Literacy.

You are welcome to join us in Humanities 1st and 4th periods and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and/or Mathematics) during 2nd and 3rd periods.

Responsibilities

  • Provide general in-class support (there’s always somebody working on something!)-This requires the tutor to be outgoing and willing to take initiative in approaching students, asking questions, offering support.
  • Provide one-on-one support to an identified student who has an individualized learning plan/specific goal (most likely in Math, but also Reading, Language, and Social Studies).-Comfort with pre-algebra, geometry, data analysis helpful; knowledge of English language development a plus.
  • Talk about a Text (be provided with a text, a very specific reading/analysis routine, and a small group of students)-This requires the tutor to feel comfortable reading a 9 th-12 th grade level text out loud to students.
  • Facilitate Writing Workshops (following a very specific protocol that teacher will provide)- However, this might not be an available option EVERY time they show up; it’s dependent on student productivity
