Job Description

The goal of AR Kids Read is to build a replicable model program that can be implemented in any community to address the illiteracy rate among first, second and third grade students. This model program would provide early elementary students in low-income areas and low-performing schools access to on-going reading education through in-school, after-school and summer learning opportunities, as well as access to quality literacy resources. AKR proposes to engage VISTAs to support the volunteer reading tutor and school network in which community volunteers tutor early elementary struggling readers in low-performing schools in impoverished areas during the school year for an hour a week, after school, and during summer programs. We believe that as a result, the students' academic performance and attitude toward reading will improve.
