Tutor in the Seattle community and take Education seminars with the UW Pipeline Project!

The UW Pipeline Project recruits, trains and places UW students as volunteer tutors in Seattle schools and community organizations. We are recruiting tutors for Winter quarter to work with about 40 different schools, and would love to have you! We’ll help you get set up tutoring in a K-12 classroom or community organization. Tutors make a minimum commitment of 2-3 hours per week for at least one quarter.

The schedule is flexible: schools need tutors Mon-Fri between 7:30 and 5pm. And we offer transportation to some of our partner schools that have the highest need for tutors.

Participate in a weekly Pipeline seminar and tutor for at least 2.5 hours a week at a Seattle school or community organization! All of our courses are Credit/No Credit, are I & S credits, and are listed under EDUC 401. Seminars are a fantastic opportunity to learn about issues in public education and tutoring strategies, while reflecting and learning from your tutoring site.

Seminars include:

EDUC 401M: Tutoring Math and Science in K-12 | Mondays from 4:30-5:50pm

EDUC 401I: Teaching English Language Learners | Tuesdays from 10:30-11:50am

EDUC 401L: Challenges and Opportunities in K-12 Education | Wednesdays from 5:00-6:20pm

Applications open for the 2018-2019 Husky Leadership Certificate Cohort!

Applications are LIVE for the 2018-19 cohort of the Husky Leadership Certificate program. We are seeking Huskies who practice leadership in a variety of ways. Our leaders are change-agents, entrepreneurs, scholars, activists, athletes, educators and more. This is your opportunity to reflect on your leadership development journey during your undergraduate education.

Through the Husky Leadership Certificate (HLC), students identify, articulate and demonstrate their leadership learning, growth and accomplishments. Students create a leadership e-portfolio and are matched with their own mentor (faculty member/staff member/alumni) who helps them reflect upon and give voice to their leadership development. Students must be a junior or senior to be considered.

Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. on November 14. No late applications will be accepted.

Applicants will be notified by early December if they have been selected for the cohort and will then be matched with a mentor. All HLC students are required to take a 1-credit winter quarter course (available in-person or online) to support their portfolio development process. For more information, please visit the program website.
