Description

Remote Volunteer Literacy Tutor Spring 2024

READ 718 is looking for volunteer literacy tutors for our Remote After School Program -Spring 2024 Cycle (April 8th- June 20th). Volunteers must attend an orientation session and one training session, both on the virtual conferencing app Zoom. They must also undergo a background check.

READ 718 is a nonprofit literacy center that provides after-school tutoring and literacy workshops to students in grades 3-8 that are reading below grade level and come from low-income households. We are looking for dedicated, reliable, caring, positive people who are committed to working with a child virtually via Zoom twice a week, 1 hour per session, for 10 weeks in the Spring (April 8th- June 20th). Tutors will be provided with digital texts for each session, as well as access to guidance from literacy educators via email, phone, and weekly Zoom conferences.

Children who are behind in reading after grade 3 and do not receive the targeted instruction that they need simply fall further and further behind. This issue has only been exacerbated by the COVID-19 crisis. READ 718 aims to provide students with high-quality, supplementary instruction to bridge the gap between students who are struggling and their grade-level peers.
