Colorado Math Corps - Tutor Position {Greeley/Loveland}

Colorado Youth for a Change

About the organization

Colorado Youth for a Change (CYC) is an educational nonprofit organization with a statewide scope. CYC’s mission is to solve Colorado’s dropout crisis. CYC provides a continuum of services from Prekindergarten through High School to help students find success through tutoring, case management, and outreach to help in-school youth remain in school or out-of-school youth return to school. Math Corps is a step along that continuum to support students.

Program Overview
Colorado Math Corps is an AmeriCorps program with the mission of ensuring that Colorado middle school students struggling in math receive daily individualized support in order to improve math skills. Math skills are highly predictive of high school graduation. In fact, nearly 90% of students who fail 6th grade math drop out of high school. The research tells us algebra proficiency is strongly correlated with college attendance and higher lifetime earnings.
