READ 718 is looking for volunteer literacy tutors. Volunteers must attend an orientation and one training session. We are currently recruiting for our fall program (September 26-December 8), but volunteers may apply on a rolling basis to begin tutoring after the 26th.
READ 718 is a non-profit literacy center that provides afterschool tutoring and literacy workshops to low-income students in grades 3-8. We are looking for dedicated, reliable, caring, positive people who are committed to working with a child twice a week for 11 weeks (September 26-December 8), excluding Public School vacation dates. Tutors will be provided with easy-to-follow lesson plans for each session, and will have access to reading specialists for questions and guidance.
Children who are behind in reading after grade 3 and do not receive the targeted instruction that they need simply fall further and further behind. READ 718 aims to provide students with high quality, supplementary instruction to bridge the gap between students who are struggling and their grade level peers.
