Opportunities
Academic Coach

Are you looking for a regular volunteer opportunity where you can work directly with students? We want you to become an Academic Coach with First Graduate!
First Graduate helps students finish high school, become the first in their families to graduate from college, and launch trailblazing careers. On this path to college our students need help improving their academics and becoming the best students they can. This is where you come in. We're looking for Academic Coaches (our word for "tutors") to give students homework assistance and help them develop organization and study skills. You will work directly with small groups of First Graduate students to help them succeed in school. This is a truly hands-on volunteer opportunity that makes a huge impact on our students' lives.
We ask Academic Coaches to make a one semester commitment, from January 20th - May 7th, and volunteer at least once a week. We provide all Academic Coaches with an in depth training, to prepare you to be an awesome and effective Academic Coach.

Wait, did you say high school application?

First Graduate recruits students from public middle schools in the SFUSD. Once it is time for students to transition to high school, First Graduate helps students apply to the right high schools where they can become strong college candidates and gain the academic skills necessary to succeed in college. Students in San Francisco must apply to high school because all high schools are city-wide schools. So even if a student chooses to continue to go to public school, they will need to put together a top-notch application to get into the more competitive high schools.
