Reading Assist Institute Programs
Reading Assist Reading Corps 2018-19
Applications are now being accepted for the twelve month, full time 2018-19 Reading Corps/AmeriCorps position which runs August 1, 2018-July 30, 2019. Reading Corps Members receive extensive training in the Reading Assist Intervention Program and are then placed in local schools to work with struggling readers. This intervention is accredited by IMSLEC (International Multisensory Language Education Council) and Reading Corps members will have the opportunity to earn Reading Assist certification through this year of service. As an AmeriCorps Member you will also serve in the greater community on group projects and be connected to over 200 AmeriCorps Members in Delaware. We seek passionate, capable individuals who are ready to learn how to deliver this evidence based intervention program to struggling readers. You do not need teaching experience, but you must to be ready to commit to students who will see you as a tutor, as a teacher, as a mentor and as a dependable presence in their lives. Reading Corps members must serve a minimum of 1700 hours and receive an $18,000 living allowance, health benefits, childcare support if needed, student loan forbearance with most providers, and an education award ranging from $5000 - $6000 to use for future education or to pay back student loans. Members who are age 55 or older when they begin their service may also gift the education award to a child or grandchild. This opportunity is for a select group of individuals whose greatest reward will be watching children’s self-esteem rise as they become more confident readers.
