Breakthrough Birmingham is an education non-profit that works with Birmingham City middle schoolers who are motivated to go to college. The bulk of our program is a rigorous six week summer enrichment program, and we are currently accepting applications for the Volunteer Teaching Assistant (VTA) position. The Volunteer Teaching Assistant (VTA) application for the summer is now online and ready to be submitted. The link is http://breakthrough.tfaforms.net/305964. We ask that if students are interested in being a VTA, that they be available for at least 4 hours at a time twice a week. Our program is Monday through Friday from 8am-4pm from June 15th to July 24th. This position is great for high school volunteer hours over the summer. As a VTA, students can be involved in helping facilitate academic classes such as math, science, literature, and writing in the morning or elective classes in the afternoon, and if they choose, they can participate in our field trip, career day, Olympics day, and/or college visits. Please feel free to pass this information along, and let me know if you or your students have any additional questions about the Volunteer Teaching Assistant position. In addition, you may check out our website at http://www.breakthroughcollaborative.org/birmingham to find more information about the work that Breakthrough does.
