AGENCY OVERVIEW
Huckleberry Youth Programs (HYP) is a critical provider of essential safety net services for high-needs youth and their families in San Francisco and Marin County. For over 40 years, HYP has developed and maintained prevention programs that promote the health and leadership of youth, and, as a result, divert youth from violence, crime and gang involvement, as well as other harmful behaviors, including running away, drug/alcohol abuse, risky sexual activities, and involvement in the juvenile justice system.   One of the programs we offer is the Huckleberry Wellness Academy Program. This is a program that recruits underperforming, high potential, first generation college-bound SFUSD youth who are interested in health careers. The students in our program begin in their sophomore year of high school and are supported through their first year of college. A critical piece of our programming is tutoring. In order to maintain a high GPA and a challenging course load that will make them competitive for college admissions, Wellness Academy students rely on additional tutoring and assistance with homework.
 
DUTIES
Huckleberry Wellness Academy is seeking a highly skilled and experienced tutor for the 2013-2014 school year. We are looking for individuals with a high level of mastery in high school level math and science, specifically Advanced Algebra, Geometry, Biology, Physiology and Chemistry. Tutors meet with students individually or in small groups during after school hours onsite at our Haight-Ashbury location in San Francisco. Tutors will assist students with homework as well as reinforce concepts covered in students’ classes. Applicants should be available to work one to three weekday afternoons for up to 10 hours per week, between the hours of 3:00pm and 6:00pm.
Compensation will be in the range of $15-25 per hour, commensurate with experience. This project starts in early September and is expected to complete at the end of the 2013-2014 SFUSD school year. Qualified candidates should have previous tutoring experience and must possess a high level of mastery in high school level math and science. Fluency in Spanish and ability to tutor students who are more comfortable receiving instruction in Spanish is a desired qualification. Experience working with underserved youth from public schools is desired. Applicants must also pass a criminal background check.
