Boys & Girls Club of Paterson and Passaic, Inc.

Posted on July 20, 2023

To help support a new Academic and Tutoring Coordinator to oversee and manage the organization’s academic resources and tutoring programs for local youths aged 5-18. This new position seeks to address the (pandemic-exacerbated) learning gaps that their youths face. The Coordinator’s main tasks are to: establish a resource library; hire and train tutors and certified teachers; coordinate with school administrators; engage the parents in supporting their children; organize all necessary physical resources including books, tablets, and appropriate learning spaces within the Clubhouses; and conduct assessments and then report upon data and program progress. This position could enable the Club, which has been providing minimal tutoring during the pandemic years, to increase its academic supports to some 250 youth per week at 2 locations in Paterson and Passaic, two of New Jersey’s more socio-economically challenged communities.
