About

Read Write Discover organizes free summer reading programs in San Francisco, San Jose, Milpitas and Fremont. High school students volunteer as tutors and are matched with youth from grades K-8. Our programs target students who are struggling in reading and writing and those without supplemental resources.


Directors help manage a subset of summer literacy programs in libraries around the Bay Area and oversee the high school coordinators who organize RWD programs at each library.


Specific responsibilities include:

  • Maintaining constant communication and coordinating logistics, via email or phone, with 2-3 assigned libraries
  • Finding high school students to act as volunteer coordinators (for example: publicity, emailing schools, interviewing potential applicants, and helping to train them)
  • Acting as a mentor to these high school students to build and strengthen their leadership abilities, while also maintaining community relations to the libraries
  • Following up with coordinators to ensure the site is running smoothly
  • Attending online meetings every 2 weeks with other directors
