The federal "America Reads" initiative includes a vital national service component. The goal of this campaign is to ensure that every child can read independently by the end of the third grade. Children who do not read early and read well are held back at the start of their education - and possibly for the rest of their lives.
The America Reads program at Dartmouth allows students in the Federal Work-Study Program to be employed as in-school K-5th grade tutors (approximately 15-25 minute drive from Dartmouth).
Tutors may work individually or with small groups of children each week. They stay with the same children throughout the term, and preferably, throughout the year. Through steady reading sessions and creative activities, tutors work to instill a love of reading in children.
MUST be work-study eligible!!
