Do you believe that literacy is a human right?
Reading is the foundation for educational success and opportunities in life, yet many children are not given the time and skills to build this foundation. Children without the necessary literacy skills can fall behind quickly, and the consequences last a lifetime. Children who are not reading on grade level by the end of third grade are four times less likely to graduate from high school.
The Literacy Lab recognizes that ensuring all students have the chance to read proficiently is an urgent and critical need. Our approach is to provide pre-K and elementary schools with evidence-based literacy intervention, full-time literacy tutors to implement the model, and assessment tools and a coaching support structure that ensures the success of the program and students.
If you believe literacy is a human right and want to ensure that all children learn to read proficiently, you belong on our team!
WHAT YOU’LL DO
Tutors will serve full-time for an entire academic year in an assigned school and work with a caseload of about 15-18 students in need of targeted reading support. Tutors will implement specific early literacy interventions, conduct weekly progress monitoring, and work with a team of coaches to make data-informed decisions to ensure each child is on track to read proficiently. Tutors are a part of the school community and will work to build strong relationships with students, teachers, and other staff. In addition, tutors will participate in community-based volunteer opportunities.
