Academy Prep Center of Tampa is a private, non-profit middle school that serves economically disadvantaged students. All students attend Academy Prep tuition-free by qualifying for need-based scholarships. Located in historic Ybor City, our campus is near all of the best that Tampa has to offer.
We are looking for recent college graduates to teach a humanities/visual arts class for the upcoming 2021-22 academic year. The exact course is TBD, but it will be humanities and/or visual arts related. No education-specific degree or teaching license is required; the only requirement is a Bachelor's degree.
This position is offered through our AmeriCorps Specialist Teacher program. In addition to Academy Prep’s full-time academic and arts faculty, Academy Prep partners with the AmeriCorps Notre Dame Mission Volunteers program for additional specialty teachers. Annually, about 5-6 AmeriCorps volunteers call Academy Prep home. They live on campus in comfortable, spacious, fully-furnished apartments, with rent and utilities covered by Academy Prep. The AmeriCorps volunteers are an integral part of Academy Prep: they teach supplemental classes like PE, oversee serving breakfast, lunch, and snack, and teach our enrichment program classes. Academy Prep’s specialty teachers from AmeriCorps come to the organization with a wide range of talents, backgrounds, and areas of expertise. Many of the current Academy Prep faculty/staff once began with Academy Prep as AmeriCorps volunteers.
