Adult Achiever Opportunities

Adult mentorship is by far the biggest asset of Y Achievers. Adult Achievers provide an invaluable connection between the corporate world and the local community by developing and conducting programming that allows participants to become linked to education, business and industry.

Career Cluster Leader (9th – 12th Grades Only)
Assist in the design and implementation of workshops and projects related to specific careers of interest or expertise. This is a Saturday commitment.

Adult Achiever Program Leader
Lead the implementation of workshops and other activities geared toward helping programs participants improve their knowledge of the college-going process, personal/professional etiquette, public speaking and other topics within the five programmatic thrusts. This is a weekday commitment.

Time Commitment:
A year-long (September – June) bi-weekly (2 times per month) program commitment is ideal and preferred for maximum benefit to our students.
