K. has graduated high-school and is transitioning to Portland Community College next year. Because of her intellectual disability, she qualifies for PSW supports through Washington County. We're looking for someone who can take K. to classes, help her understand assignments and organize time, and forge a relationship with her that helps her deal with any anxieties this transition will cause and make her experience at PCC a positive one!
We haven't selected classes for the fall term yet, and can be pretty flexible on the times. Our expectation is that she'll take 12 credit hours, so, with travel time, this is probably a 15 hour/week commitment. Because the In-Class Aide is there in class, but not _taking_ the class, this could be a perfect job for a student who can use the time to get their own homework
