The AmeriCorps Site Coordinator is the face of Reading Partners within our reading centers in elementary schools, leading the full-time program coordination, operations, and relationship development at their school. This is an exciting opportunity to serve directly with kids, coach volunteers, build partnerships with faculty and staff, and gain hands-on-experience with a literacy program that works!
The AmeriCorps Distance Tutoring Coordinator plays a critical role in our school-based team within the region. In response to Covid-19, Reading Partners will implement a distance tutoring program, for which the AmeriCorps Distance Tutoring Coordinator will work in collaboration with the Site Coordinator as a team to deliver the program. This role will co-lead, with the Site Coordinator, all student support services to ensure their success in the program. The Distance Tutoring Coordinator also serves as the lead logistical and family, student, and volunteer engagement support, ensuring all parties are equipped to attend and successfully complete their sessions. They accomplish this by coordinating and coaching tutors, coordinating and supporting families, observing distance tutoring sessions for student needs, and maintaining data systems related to distance tutoring in collaboration with AmeriCorps Site Coordinators. This is an exciting new role that supports new programming created in response to Covid-19 and is an opportunity to serve and get involved in a literacy program.
