The New York Public Library is preparing to launch a large-scale Out-of-School Time (OST) Program throughout the Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island, where we serve tens of thousands of children and youth every day. The OST Program was created in order to address the academic needs of New York City’s children and youth in an informal, enriching library environment.
A critical component of the OST Program is our "Enrichment Zones", which will be located in five (5) community branch libraries and focus on providing structured homework help to students in grades 1 through 8. In addition to homework help, students will use engaging educational software to supplement their skill-building, and will participate in enrichment activities that address the Common Core Learning Standard in math, literacy, science, and social studies through hands-on exploration and experimentation.
Enrichment Zones will run from September 23, 2013 until December 20, 2013 in the following locations:
Tutors will have the choice of working M/W/F from 3 - 6 PM, T/Th/F from 3 - 6 PM, or M - F from 3 - 6 PM.
Hourly rate is $15.00/hr
