Literacy is the cornerstone of our program as we serve students where English is generally their second or third language. Before coming to The Nest, most of our students cannot read/write/speak in English. The Nest Academy seeks tutors who are trained in literacy, language or ESL (English as a Second Language) and/or multisensory-based instruction. This is an excellent opportunity for volunteers who can dedicate at least two one-hour blocks of time per week for the semester or school year. If you are interested in tutoring reading and do not have prior training, we can train/equip you.
