CSSP programming includes two West Philadelphia area high schools: William L. Sayre High School and West Philadelphia High School. There are several programs available for mentor participation, including tutoring, afterschool programs, workshops and College Access and Career Readiness (CACR).
Tutoring: working one-on-one or in small groups to help students with subject-specific material.
Afterschool programs: Out-of-School Time (OST) is afterschool programming at the high school level. It focuses on improving academic achievement through extracurricular enrichment activities (cheerleading, sports, leadership) and targeted workshops.
Workshops: Working with students in small or medium size groups discussing and doing activities in relation to a topic of interest to high school students. For example, mentors may discuss and do activities in relation to what students are worried about for their first year of college.
College Access Career Readiness (CACR): CACR encompasses all applications, academics, tests and preparation regarding students post-graduation plans. Mentors may do a range of work, from helping students with the college application process, to preparing for the SAT/ACT, to assisting students’ research of career paths.
