Remote Volunteer Literacy Tutor, Summer 2024

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: READ 718

READ 718 is looking for volunteer literacy tutors for our Summer Reading Room (July 8th- August 15th). Volunteers must attend an orientation session and one training session, both on the virtual conferencing app Zoom. They must also undergo a background check.

READ 718 is a nonprofit literacy center that provides after-school 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 virtually via Zoom twice a week for 6 weeks in the Summer (July 8th- August 15th). Tutors will be provided with digital texts for each session, as well as access to guidance from literacy educators via email, phone, and weekly Zoom conferences.

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. This issue has only been exacerbated by the COVID-19 crisis. 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.
