In this branch of the Partnership, Plan II students (commonly referred to as "PlanTutors") will be engaged as volunteers at KIPP Austin Collegiate (KAC), KIPP Austin's first high school.
The major focus of this branch is helping KAC students successfully navigate the college application process, which can be a daunting and difficult experience for them. In the fall, PlanTutors work with high school seniors, and in the spring, PlanTutors work with high school juniors. PlanTutors also have the opportunity to work with KAC teachers to student-teach lessons on surviving and thriving in college and will themselves take a 6-session, one-hour course at UT to discuss tutoring challenges or successes and learn about the broader context of their service learning.
PlanTutoring is the only P2K service option that is open to Plan II students at every level, including freshmen. The program is also a good option for those who want to work with students closer to their own age, specifically on college preparation. This option provides a unique and guided opportunity for Plan II students interested in exploring teaching at the high school level.
