What's AVID? AVID is an elective class at all the middle, high and option schools in the Beaverton School District. The class helps students develop the skills that they'll need to be successful in college and beyond. As part of the class, students participate in student-led tutorial sessions, where small groups of students come together to work through problems that they're experiencing in their core classes. Right now, the classes and tutorial sessions are all online.
That's where you come in! We need AVID eTutors to help facilitate the conversation. Don't worry, you don't need any content or subject knowledge. You're really a coach, encouraging the students. You'll be supported by the elective teacher and another adult volunteer. Because tutorials take place on Zoom, you can volunteer from the comfort of your home or office. The time commitment is just one hour per week. There are opportunities throughout the school day at the school of your choice. Training involves a self-paced online course plus a one-hour Zoom class. That's it!
