Marquette University Educational Opportunity Program Pre-College Division is seeking motivated and responsible college students to serve as teaching assistants and tutor counselors for its Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math & Science commuter and residential programs for the 2017 summer session. The program will run from Thursday, June 15, to Saturday, July 29.
The positions require an interest in developing the college ready skills of first-generation, income-eligible teens from Milwaukee’s inner city and area high schools. TA’s work with instructional teams to deliver and reinforce curriculum for one of several interdisciplinary projects. TC’s monitor students’ interpersonal skills and serve as role models and mentors. Resident assistants monitor dormitory life and coordinate activities. These positions also require participants to supervise students on a variety of field trip opportunities. TA’s and TC’s are expected to be responsible, conscientious, and excellent communicators.
Those who are interested are invited to stop by an informational table on Thursday, March 23, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the AMU atrium or Monday, March 27, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. by the Brew.
All applications are due by Friday, April 7. For more information or to receive an application, please contact Liz Juntunen, pre-college counselor, at (414) 288-5336.
