Literacy Leader (LL)

Work with us during our six-week program over the summer! Our college-aged teachers are motivated, energetic, and positive young adults that serve not only as teachers of the literacy curriculum, but as leadership models to our scholars and teen volunteers. A Literacy Leader is responsible for a classroom of 10-12 children, motivating them to love reading, learning, and believe in themselves while engaging them in a wide range of enrichment activities. If you or someone you know is interested in applying to be a Literacy Leader, please visit our Literacy Leaders page and follow the online application.
