High School Math Coach
At Alternatives in Action (AIA) we believe young people are powerful. In our schools and community programs, we see young people striving for more voice, more connection, more ownership, and more meaningful ways to make a difference - for their own future and their communities. Because we believe in the power and promise of young people, we inspire them, support them, and create opportunities for young people to make a real difference. As our youth practice cascading leadership, take meaningful action, and build real relationships with adult allies & peers, they experience empowerment that will help them shape a secure future for themselves, their families, and their communities. Each year, we develop the leadership skills of over 1,300 youth, with thousands of additional children & families benefiting from the community-based projects created by our participants.
In 2001, Alternatives in Action opened the first youth-designed charter high school in the country, Alternatives in Action High School (AIAHS), formerly the Bay Area School of Enterprise. Our high school focuses on supporting youth who have been unsuccessful in traditional learning environments and are looking for a small, relationship-based alternative. Serving 160 youth, AIAHS supports youth to be college, career and community ready through project-based learning and youth-adult partnerships. We believe that all youth are wise, resourceful, and capable of making positive changes in their own lives and in the community. Our teaching staff are called “coaches” to reinforce the roles adults play in facilitating youth’s learning and development. We ask that teachers hold a frame of restorative justice in our classrooms and beyond.
