Description

At Reading Assist, we serve those who struggle the most with learning to read, inside low-income elementary schools in Delaware. Without the Reading Assist Intervention (RAI) Corps, many of these students would not have access to the one-to-one intervention they need. Some have dyslexia or other reading disorders; others are English Language Learners. As a member of the RAI Corps, you will teach the foundational reading skills to these students on a one-to-one basis, for 45 minutes a day per student, developing skills in them that can last a lifetime.

You would begin your year of service with five weeks of extensive training alongside fellow Corps members – members who come to us from all across the country – learning our accredited and successful Reading Assist Intervention Program. After training, you will be assigned in small groups to one of our partner schools. Each Corps member is matched with six students in grades 1 through 3. RAI Corps members meet individually with their students on a daily basis.
