A job description is below:

General Description:
Cool Classics! is an after-school program that uses classic books to connect children to a unified world of reading, art, culture, humanities and ideas. Created by an award-winning journalist, this nonprofit is committed to improving literacy among low-income elementary school students, expanding their sense of arts and culture, creating readers and critical thinkers and serving schools that have lost arts and culture programs and are overwhelmed by demands of test-driven curricula. We aim to improve participants’ reading comprehension, analytic skills and build lasting communities of our students, their families, teachers and school administrators to insure success as they continue their education throughout their lives.
