Help disadvantaged students ace the SAT!

Looking for a great way to give back to the greater community? Wesleyan’s Let’s Get Ready college prep program is looking for coaches! SAT Coaches volunteer for one or two nights a week to help students in low-income areas get into college.

Let’s Get Ready expands access to college in America by mobilizing, equipping, and empowering a movement of college students helping high school students get to college. Through a network of campus and community-based chapters, Let’s Get Ready’s trained college student volunteers provide disadvantaged students with intensive SAT preparation, college advising, and the powerfully relevant role-models and mentors they need to succeed.

As an SAT Coach with Let’s Get Ready, you will teach math and/or critical reading and writing SAT prep. LGR will provide you with training and curricula. You will guide small groups of high school students through the college process you recently completed. Most importantly, you will become a role model and integral part of many high school students’ academic and personal lives.

This is a volunteer position, but work-study compensation is available to eligible students.

    Since it’s well-documented that economically disadvantaged students tend to score less well on the SAT (since they can’t afford expensive prep) this is a wonderful venture.Martin

    I did Let’s Get Ready last year, and let me just say – it’s a fantastic program aimed at redistributing cultural and social capital. It’s a lot of fun, you get really close to a few awesome high school students, and it has genuinely good intentions.
