The Anisfield-Wolf Associate will work under the direction of the Youth Services Director. Sisterhood meets Tuesday – Thursday 3:00 – 6:30 p.m. and Friday 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. with the exception of CMSD and West Side Community House holidays.
The associate will create a plan within the Sisterhood curriculum for the Literacy Project. The project will include interactive workshops, guest speakers and an introduction and explanation of the Anisfield-Wolf Awards competition designed to capture the girls’ interest and enthusiasm.
The associate also will engage participants in reading selected award winning literature that is pertinent to the girls’ environment, to their challenges and their “designated” place in society. The associate will work with participants one-on-one and in groups toward the following goals: to develop writing skills (poetry, fiction and non-fiction), to use writing as a form of self-expression, and to read their works and those of other writers aloud in a public setting with confidence.
The associate will coordinate a small onsite event during Sisterhood hours for all participants to present their works to friends, family and members of the community at the end of March.
