Description

In Washington State, almost 50% of 4th graders are not proficient readers, a skill that is essential for success in later grades and beyond. One way to address this disparity is through one-on-one and small group literacy tutoring for students in Pre-K through 4th grade. Early literacy tutoring not only improves test scores, but may also positively affect grades, long-term educational outcomes, self-image, and perceptions about personal futures.

As a Washington Reading Corps member, you will:
- Provide classroom pull-out or push-in literacy tutoring
- Facilitate literacy activities during lunch or recess, and in after-school programs
- Organize literacy events and activities at the service site
- Recruit and/or manage additional literacy volunteers from the community

These positions are full-time (40 hours/week) for 6-10 months, depending on service site. Positions slated to start September 2020 through February 2021.

BENEFITS

- Monthly stipend of $1,450
- Health insurance coverage
- Childcare assistance, if qualified
- Upon successful completion of service term, an education award that can be used to pay for college tuition, pay off existing qualified school loans, or – if the member is at least 55 years of age – can be transferred to a child or grandchild.
