Depends on Qualifications
Alamance County has the opportunity to improve the present and future lives of juveniles in their first encounter with the court system. The Alamance Juvenile Opportunity Bridge (AJOB) channels teens (14-17 years old or older if still in juvenile court) away from crime and into careers. AJOB intervention comes at a critical time for the student. When first in trouble with the law at school, juveniles have two potential pathways: legal action or deferment to an education career pathway at ACC. For the career pathway, AJOB provides soft skills training (financial literacy, time management, job behavior), hands-on experience in potential industries and careers, and meetings with potential employers. Only students with first-time, misdemeanor charges are eligible for the program.
Example of Duties
AJOB instructors will guide youth through the Bring Your A Game Curriculum (Youth Edition)—an interactive curriculum that ends with a recognized credential. Many partners are involved in AJOB, but ACC will provide the following:
Weekly, 1.5-hour classes based at the Advanced Applied Technology Center at ACC's main campus. Instructors will follow the Bringing Your A Game curriculum for about half the class time.
ACC faculty will demonstrate careers in the remaining class time. Sometimes the class will meet at the Dillingham Center, the Powell Building, or the new Biotechnology Center of Excellence building to experience careers taught at those locations.
Classes will be Tuesdays, at 5:00, for eight weeks, beginning Tuesday, March 14. Allowing for 30 minutes before and after class, the total daily time commitment is 2.5 hours, times eight weeks, for 20 hours total, plus paid preparation time.
Students will be expected to pass the A Game credential exam at the end of eight weeks. Taking attendance is critical, but otherwise, the only paperwork will be generated by the A Game curriculum.
The first class will consist of 5-10 students. As the program progresses, an additional assistant will be added for students in increments of five. The spring session is a pilot to learn how to improve the program, but the assumption is that AJOB will be a permanent part of ACC services with proper funding. Instructors only need to sign up for one eight-week session at a time.
An ACC on-line application MUST be fully completed for consideration, which includes a required letter of interest and transcript attachment. Resume attachments are welcome but will not be accepted in lieu of complete application. Transcript MUST be scanned and attached in order to be considered for this position!
