iEducate is building a system for school districts to engage college and high school youth within the classroom to close achievement gaps at a foundational level. During the school year, we match college students with neighboring elementary schools, placing them alongside teachers to support differentiated instruction. Over the summer, we bring together partner agencies to collaborate on curriculum & training that empower youth to design and lead summer camps at each school. iEducate is seeking VISTA members to develop the tools and processes around our operations, PR, partnerships and technology that will help to scale our model within Houston and beyond.
