JCYC ETS at Roosevelt Middle School

The mission of JCYC ETS is to help students get to college.  At Roosevelt, we offer tutoring and help students learn about college and future careers through field trips and presentations.  JCYC ETS is funded by a TRIO grant from the U.S. Department of Education.  All of our services are free.  All students need to complete an application to participate in JCYC ETS activities.



JCYC offers drop-in lunch tutoring Monday through Thursday in the library.  We also offer after school tutoring Monday through Thursday in the library from 3:30 pm to 6 pm as part of the Beacon after school program.  Educational Advisor Ms. Mai Her and part-time tutors work with students.



Introduction to JCYC ETS / Study Skills (6th grade): The presentation includes a custom Jeopardy game with questions about JCYC ETS services, study skills, test taking tips, high school, and college.        

High School Enrollment Process (8th grade): This presentation, also in the form of a Jeopardy game, helps students learn about the different types of schools, how to choose a high school, how the district assigns students to schools, and important dates.

Career Exploration (7th grade): Students take an interactive career assessment on the internet designed to help them match their skills and needs to different jobs.

Career Day (all grades): Speakers from many different career paths talk about their professions and help students understand the connection between academics and future careers.

Preparing for College (8th grade): Students discover the reasons to attend college, basic college facts and admission requirements, and what students need to do to get to college. 

High School Student Panel (8th grade): Participants learn what high school is like from Roosevelt alumni who now attend San Francisco high schools.
