Amphibious Achievement is a comprehensive athletic and academic mentorship program. Explain why you are interested in becoming a mentor for Amphibious Achievement (what excites you about the program, what skills and opportunities do you hope to gain?). Please limit your answer to 250 words.
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word "amphibious."
Please tell us about your past mentoring experience. This can include working or volunteering as a tutor, serving as a peer tutor, working as an assistant coach or coach for a sport, or general mentorship in the form of providing support to friends, family etc.
Please list two characteristics that define for you what it means to be a role model.
Just as our Achievers are expected to succeed on and off the water, we also expect our mentors to be mentors on and off the water. This means calling your Achievers during the week, coming to Saturday tutor training sessions, and even picking up ABP pastries once a semester. Please describe your commitment to being a mentor on and off the water.
Please Indicate which position in Amphibious Achievement you are most interested in applying for. You can select multiple positions.
Mentor Corps Tutor. Tutors are the bread and butter of our organization. These tutors participate in the Sunday tutoring sessions with all of our 35-40 high school students from 11am-1pm. After the morning athletic portion, we come in to the classroom for a healthy lunch and then dive into critical reading, math, and writing. These sessions are dynamic and interactive, involving one-on-one reading from the Economist with your tutor, math YouTube songs and demonstrations, and a writing Jeopardy!-style competition.
Mentor Corps Coach. Coaches serve as a crew or swimming instructor for a group of about 15-20 high school student every Sunday from 9am-10:30am. Athletic instruction is based on sound technical training taught via interactive and unique exercises. These include dynamic yoga exercises and the synchronization of body motion to hip hop music. As a coach, you will further help student-athletes gain endurance via brainstorming and implementing endurance drills as well as motivating students during timed trills. A key aspect of athletic instruction is the coach's ability to articulate how athletics can be used as a vehicle for success in all aspects of life.
Please take a minute to honestly evaluate yourself, where 1 is the least comfortable and 5 is the most comfortable. This will not affect your admission to the program; it will only serve as a gauge for our training process.
