About READ 718

READ 718 is a Brooklyn community-based organization providing individualized, evidence-based, one-to-one literacy instruction to children from low-income households in grades 3-8 who have fallen behind in reading. We are committed to closing the literacy gap in Brooklyn and helping to ensure educational access and equity for all Brooklyn children. Our immediate goal is for our participants to leave our program reading at or above grade level; our ultimate goal is to make a substantial impact on our students’ lifelong education and life outcomes by strengthening their fundamental reading skills.

The Program Assistant will be responsible for working with the Program Manager on a variety of tasks including leveling and organizing books in our libraries, data entry, community outreach, volunteer recruitment, family onboarding, and regular communication with families and volunteers.
