Pipeline Seminars Winter 2017

Tutor at an elementary, middle or high school in Seattle during Winter Quarter with the UW Pipeline Project!
The UW Pipeline Project recruits, trains and places UW students as volunteer tutors in Seattle schools and community organizations. The UW Pipeline team are recruiting tutors for Spring quarter to work with about 40 different schools, and would love to have you!

Volunteer during Winter Quarter:
The UW Pipeline team would help you get set up tutoring in a K-12 classroom or community organization.  Tutors make a minimum commitment of 2-3 hours per week for at least one quarter.
The schedule is flexible: schools need tutors Mon-Fri between 7:30 and 5pm. And we offer transportation to some of our partner schools that have the highest need for tutors.

Take an EDUC 401 Inner Pipeline Seminar Class for Credit:
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 our courses are Credit/No Credit, are I & S credits, and are listed under EDUC 401. The number of credits a student receives depends on the number of tutoring hours completed in addition to seminar attendance. 2 credits: weekly seminar and tutor 2-3 hours per week. Seminars are a fantastic opportunity to learn about issues in public education and tutoring strategies, while reflecting and learning from your tutoring site.

Take a look at the Pipeline Winter Seminars:

Inner Pipeline Seminar Spotlight:
EDUC 401B: Race and Equity in Elementary School Education
Tuesdays 3:30-6:20pm

In the current age of national racial justice movements, race and equity in public schools has become part of national discourse. However, this said discourse has focused almost entirely on higher education and to a lesser extent secondary schools. This is curious, as the literature is clear that racial justice education is most effective and necessary before students reach secondary and higher education. The fluidity of racial identity development, racial logic/understanding, and family-teacher engagement distinct to the PreK-5 setting makes this a prime age group to focus efforts.  In other words, if we are going to change the relationship between schools, racism, and race formation, we need to focus on the first school many students attend: elementary school.


Sign up to tutor with the UW Pipeline Project! Middle and high schools in Seattle need volunteers who have taken college level math or science. Your skills are greatly appreciated!
