Youth Educators is a new peer tutoring program where selected high school students, in good academic standing, push into middle school Spotlight classes to support and tutor groups of students.
YEPs, as they are called, have strong academic performance, positive behavior records and display leadership abilities. They serve as role models for our younger students. It is also an important learning and leadership experience for high school students. In teams of 2, YEPs run workshop style program, coaching younger students and modeling executive functioning skills required in a personalized learning environment.
Students who successfully complete the year as Youth Educators will receive a distinction on their High School transcript and recognition at the end-of-year Director Awards ceremony.
