Blue Engine: Students Teaching Students!
Blue Engine recruits, trains, and supports a professional team of recent college graduates who work with students to accelerate academic achievement in public high schools.
Blue Engine Teaching Assistants (BETAs) engage in one year of direct service to advance educational equity and excellence in America. Blue Engine advances excellence by placing teaching assistants in classrooms where they decrease the teacher-to-student ratio and collaborate with teachers to customize instruction, increase academic rigor, and build empowering relationships with students at every academic level.
Over time, Blue Engine aims to increase college completion among students from low-income communities by helping our partner schools become beacons of educational excellence—places where college attendance is the norm and degree completion the expectation.
