***Utah Scholars Coaches | Recruiting Coaches Now: Apply!
Utah Scholars Initiative but is a program where volunteers attend 8th grade classrooms and give short presentations on the curriculum they should be taking in high school to both prepare for college as well as be eligible for the Regents Scholarship. This year we piloted a new component, the Utah Scholars Coaches. Coaches are undergraduates that are placed in schools to work with 10th grade students on college knowledge and preparation. We are currently in four schools; Kearns, Granger, Hunter, and Ogden. We are currently recruiting a new batch of interested and motivated Coaches to work with our students’ afterschool. We are asking for a yearlong commitment of approx. 3-5 hours per week, and at the end of the year the students will receive a $1,000 educational award/scholarship.
