Middle School After-School Instructor

Durham, North Carolina, United States · Middle School Program · 01


Student U is a college-access and success organization that believes all students in Durham have the ability to succeed. However, as a result of structural racism, poverty and other systemic injustices, we acknowledge that first generation college-bound students face significant personal and institutional obstacles to educational success. We want to change the odds for children in our community.

We believe that a Durham where all children can succeed is possible. We believe that our students and the children in our community are the most powerful tool our community can leverage to realize that vision. We believe that Student U’s role in creating a Durham where all children can succeed is in expanding the educational opportunities available to our students so that they may unlock their full potential and be the advocates for change within our community. In order to make this dream a reality, Student U creates a pipeline of services to support students from middle school through college. By providing direct services during out-of-school time and advocating for students and families within schools, we ensure our students develop the academic skills and personal well-being needed to succeed in their post-secondary choices and beyond.

Employees at Student U believe all students can achieve greatness. Together, through intentional staff collaboration and community partnerships, we work tirelessly to make the fearless dreams of our students come true.

The Middle School After-school Instructor role is designed for passionate individuals who believe fervently in the brilliance and potential of our students. After-school Instructors will work daily throughout the school year with the same group, or “family,” of 10-15 middle school students, acting as an academic coach, mentor, and constant source of support for each student. After-school Instructors will work closely with the Middle School Program Coordinators to ensure that each student is receiving the support, intervention, and enrichment that he or she needs to be successful academically, emotionally, and socially during the school year.
