Success in college is shaped by many factors, but research has consistently shown that academic rigor during high school is the single strongest predictor of whether students sink or swim once they enter college. To ensure students build strong academic foundations in high school, Blue Engine recruits, trains, and supports Blue Engine Teaching Assistants (BETAs), recent college graduates who collaborate with teachers to help students develop advanced skills in mathematics, literacy, and social cognition before they set foot on campus.
We’re so excited to help the Blue Engine team spend as little time as possible on AmeriCorps timesheets so that as much energy as possible can be directed towards delivering on the promises being made to the students they serve.
