As part of the Center for Experiential Learning and Diversity, the Pipeline Project is a kindergarten through 12th grade (K-12) outreach program that connects UW undergraduate students with educational and service opportunities in local and regional schools and community organizations through tutoring and mentoring.
Here are a few upcoming opportunities for Winter Quarter…
The Pipeline Project is recruiting tutors for Winter quarter to work with about 25 schools, and would love to have you! Tutors make a minimum commitment of 2-3 hours per week for at least one quarter in a K-12 classroom or community organization.
The schedule is flexible: schools need tutors Monday – Friday between 7:30am and 5:00pm. The Pipeline Project offers transportation to some 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 these EDUC 401 courses are Credit/No Credit and count as I & S credits. Seminars are a fantastic opportunity to learn about issues in public education and tutoring strategies, while reflecting and learning from your tutoring site.
Mondays | 6:00 PM – 7:20 PM
Newly arrived immigrant and refugee students are some of the most resilient learners in our education system. Despite arriving to a new location without the familiarity of language, support systems, or societal norms they strive to be successful, both academically and holistically. This is the reality for nearly 17 million refugees around the world, including those in Seattle.
Wednesdays | 4:00 PM – 5:50 PM
This class collectively explores the landscape of being Filipinx American. Students will study the history of how schooling has been used to teach Eurocentric values, explore aspects of Filipinx identity (such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexual identity, social class), and make art! Everyone is welcome; the only thing you need is a desire to know more about what it means to be Filipinx.
Thursdays | 2:00 PM – 3:20 PM
What is protest art? By exploring different ways in which art (defined broadly), can be used to protest on a personal, local, or national/international level, this class explores how we can better address the current political moment as a student, community member, and artist. We will focus on a spectrum of ways that art can be active protest: art that provides personal liberation, art that resists a specific power or system, and art that creates community and healing from past, present, and future violence. We will then switch gears and explore strategies to equip K-12 students with the same understanding and tools of liberation, resistance, and healing, especially as it pertains to their own lives and/or issues of education.
