Two coordinators share the task of supervising each Study Center. The coordinators’ primary focus is to provide all encompassing academic support and mentor the students on study skills for all subjects while maintaining a safe and productive learning environment.
AmeriCorps Members serving with the Portland Housing Authority Implement programming in & out of the Study Center to engage students in academics. They provide one-on-one support to students and their families to get them to attend, engage, and invest in their academic future. AmeriCorps members also strengthen our program by implementing best practices in Volunteer Management.
Part time PHA Youth Programming Staff work in the Study Centers, often along side AmeriCorps members. Their role is to provide academic support in the study center during the academic year. During summer months, seasonal staff may coordinate PHA youth programs such as the free summer meals program, the summer soccer program, or provide support for the CHEETA students.
