About Joyful Readers 

Joyful Readers is committed to helping Philadelphia students gain the literacy skills they need to become successful, confident, and yes…joyful readers! Every year, we recruit a racially, culturally, and generationally diverse cohort of AmeriCorps tutors who provide high-quality, research-based reading tutoring daily to K-3 students in Philadelphia schools. The service of our tutors ensures that students in systemically under-resourced schools gain the skills they need to succeed in school, at work, and in their daily lives. 

What You’ll Do 

Joyful Readers tutors provide small group reading tutoring to students in kindergarten through 3rd grade. Our AmeriCorps tutors meet with 2 students a time, making sure they can provide the attention students need to get caught up on critical reading skills.  

Your service year starts August 29 with two-weeks of full-time training alongside the other AmeriCorps tutors in your cohort. We dive deep into training you on how to build great relationships with students and teachers and become an effective tutor.  

In late September, you will be placed in a Philadelphia elementary school until the end of May. You’ll tutor students for 30 minutes a day, Monday through Friday, supporting a caseload of up to 22 students (11 groups) who need a reading tutor. Every week, you’ll meet with your literacy coach to get feedback and support. Throughout the year, you’ll have opportunities to collaborate with staff at your school and connect with the Joyful Readers tutors and staff serving around the city.  

The Joyful Readers team is there to make sure that your service year is successful and effective. We’re here to support you as you help students learn to read! 

Who You Are 

Maybe you’ve just graduated from college, you’ve just retired, or you’re ready for a career change. Maybe you’re graduating high school and you’re ready for a real-world challenge. Maybe you’ve always been interested in education, but you want a chance to get your feet wet before exploring a teaching career. Maybe you just want a way to make sure that students who need extra help in school can get it.  

We think a lot of people have the potential to be great tutors.
