C.S. Mott Children's Hospital
Within the walls of C.S. Mott Children's Hospital, teams of individuals work together to change children's lives in extraordinary ways. For over 100 years this hospital has paved the way in providing comprehensive, specialized health care for children. Through OEC, tutors get the opportunity to work one on one with children and young adults in various hospital units to support them in achieving their academic goals.
Commitment: 2 hrs/week Monday-Saturday
8:00am-7:30pm (Specific times in application)
Pediatric Dialysis Unit
Dialysis is a process that corrects the balance of chemicals and fluids in the body and is extremely time consuming. Because of this, many dialysis patients miss hours of school weekly. OEC tutors work one-on-one with patients for personalized tutoring.
Comprehensive Eating Disorders Program
Eating Disorders patients live in the hospital for weeks to months for a comprehensive family based treatment in the hospital. However, they are unable to attend school during treatment. OEC tutors work in small groups or one-on-one with patients.
Pediatric Oncology patients are in-patient for varying degrees of time while they undergo treatment for cancer. The 7th floor "Teen Room" is used to host 1-2 tutors at a time. Patients will either come to the tutor room or tutors will be asked to tutor patients at their bedside.
Book babies is a reading initiative specifically designed to support infants from birth through 12 months. OEC tutors spend time with the infants as well as their parents, reading aloud to the infant.
