Jobs at Gear Up

Dear UTC,

The GEAR UP program, which helps 6th & 7th graders at four inner-city schools get on track for college, is hiring tutors.  If you are interested in helping a group of students who have faced some serious challenges succeed in middle school, move toward high school graduation, and realize their college ambitions, please consider becoming part of the GEAR UP effort.  

Successful applicants will:

·       Have completed a minimum of 60 undergraduate credit hours before the fall 2018 semester,

·       Have at least a 2.5 G.P.A,

·       Be enrolled in a university program or have already graduated from one, 

·       Be able to arrange transportation to the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy, Dalewood Middle, East Lake Academy or Orchard Knob Middle.

·       Have the rare pleasure of celebrating Mardi Gras and LSU sports as part of their workplace duties.

Pay for the position is $9.50 an hour and $10.50 for graduate students.

This is a great chance for you to change the future for a group of students who are unlikely to reach college and join the economic and social mainstream without the kind of help you can give them.  As a GEAR UP staff member, you’ll develop as a teacher, get practice managing and leading groups, learn about the public school system, and get to do things like play Egyptian Kickball on the job.  A stint on our staff means you will be a significant factor in the lives of some of Chattanooga’s most deserving students while being part of a lively, dedicated, well-supported team of mentor-teachers.

If you meet the above qualifications and you’re interested in lining up with Team GEARUP, please download our application packet at Return your application or direct your questions to Applications will be accepted until all positions are filled, and graduate students are eligible for these positions and are urged to apply.  Thanks, and I hope we hear from you.
