ACADEMIC YEAR (2020) POSITIONS:
VIRTUAL SUMMER PROGRAM POSITIONS:
Supervision, mentoring, and engagement of high school students during the Virtual SAIL summer programs. Responsibilities include: engaging and talking with students about goal-setting and the benefits of higher education through discussion and role-modeling, monitoring virtual classrooms and small-group breakout sessions, establishing a comfortable and inclusive group dynamic, facilitating initiative and team-building games and activities, virtual safety awareness, classroom management, monitoring attendance, keeping the administrative staff informed of all concerns, working as a team player, and completing tasks as assigned. SAIL Virtual Summer Counselors serve as role models, mentors, and are the primary supervisor of students through all daily activities. In addition to student management, Counselors will work collaboratively with their Flight Path faculty, which could include program development, student evaluation, and virtual classroom management.
SAIL Ambassadors are UO college students whom represent the University of Oregon SAIL program in the Springfield school district in both high schools and middle schools. Ambassadors affect meaningful change by assisting middle schools with 8th grade to 9th grade transition and facilitating college preparatory activities in high schools. SAIL’s ultimate focus is to provide students the necessary tools in order to pursue and enroll in higher education; ideally, transforming these students into University of Oregon Ducks themselves.
SAIL Mentors (volunteers) and Interns:
University of Oregon SAIL Mentors and Interns assist high school students in strengthening their understanding of the college admissions process. Specifically this includes developing professional relationships with high school students while helping them with academic support, goal setting, and empowering students to make educated decisions. Mentors may find themselves working on academic tutoring, ACT/SAT practice, study skills, time-management, college searches, scholarship application (FASFA), college essay writing, career exploration, and more.
Both Mentors and Ambassadors receive on-going trainings and support throughout the school year in order to improve in their ability to support SAIL Program.
