Reading Coaches needed in Revere Public Schools
2 people are interested
Generations Incorporated is looking for adult volunteers to serve as literacy coaches at Elementary Schools in Revere. Nearly 50% of Revere third graders are not reading proficiently. Students not reading at grade level by fourth grade are 4 times more likely to drop out of school and are more likely to become involved with the criminal justice system. Be a part of our volunteer team to combat this literacy crisis!
Volunteers tutor small groups of students in a classroom (K-3rd grade) or work one-on-one with students. No previous experience teaching is required, just a desire to help children become better readers!
Volunteers commit to serving for the full school year for a minimum of 4 hours per week (over two days for 2 hours each day). (Some opportunities to receive a monthly stipend are available for individuals who volunteer 10 hours per week.)
We provide extensive pre-service training to give you the tools you need to help students. Our volunteers are supported by a Site Team Leader at their service location and attend monthly professional development meetings for ongoing support. You will work with the same group of students every week to develop a relationship with the students, serve as a mentor, and see meaningful improvement in their reading skills!
Opportunities are typically available mornings between the hours 8:30 am - 1:30 pm, Mondays - Thursdays.
