Position title: Elementary Literacy Tutor – Iowa Reading Corps AmeriCorps Program
Further your career with meaning by growing the literacy skills of students! You can help students develop the literacy skills they need to succeed by serving as an AmeriCorps member with Iowa Reading Corps. Whether you’re looking to explore a new career in education, reenter the workforce, or simply want to work with kids, you can make a positive impact by serving nine months as an AmeriCorps member with Iowa Reading Corps in the Urbandale Community School District. Several half-time Elementary Literacy Tutors are available.
The Iowa Reading Corps AmeriCorps Program trains members to serve as Elementary Literacy Tutors in schools across Iowa. As a tutor, you will be trained to implement research-based strategies, monitor progress, and help children believe in themselves and succeed—all while building your own skills and professional network. Iowa Reading Corps is a replication of the successful Minnesota Reading Corps model and has seen real results in helping catch students up to their grade-level peers in reading.
During your eleven-months of AmeriCorps service, you’ll receive extensive training, support and general professional development opportunities. In addition, you will receive a living allowance of $348 every other week (before taxes) and a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award of $2,887 to pay for college expenses or to repay qualified student loans. Members will begin their term of service on September 1, 2018 and will serve half-time (approximately 30 hours/week) through May 31, 2019. Strong preference is given to applicants who can begin on time.
Elementary Literacy Tutors work one-on-one with K-3 children who need help learning to read. They use prescribed literacy interventions and conduct weekly progress monitoring to ensure their students are on track to read at grade level by the end of third grade. Our half-time members only commit to the typical school day through the duration of their term of service.
