Pay rate: $11.25 per hour

Number of openings: Until filled

Duties and Responsibilities

  • Students who commit their time in a Work Study program have a unique opportunity to inspire and educate K-4th grade students reading below grade level. These high-impact tutors work 1-on-1 with several children in a reading center located within one of 13 available elementary school partnerships, building relationships, teaching reading skills, and inspiring confidence. In addition to tutoring, Work Study students may also have the opportunity to develop additional projects based upon academic and professional development interests. Administrative support could include monitoring curriculum, tracking student progress, and basic reading center operations support.

Minimum Qualifications

  • Must be a current student of the Community College of Denver, taking at least six hours of credit and awarded work-study funds.

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities

  • Interested students will report to the Site Coordinator at their reading center location. They should be able to commit to a regular, weekly schedule and arrive on time consistently for sessions in the Reading Partners reading center. They must communicate schedule conflicts or changes to the Site Coordinator. This position requires both internal (data, administrative) and external (tutoring, volunteer support) operations skills and a desire to learn. If you're ready to make an impact in high need elementary schools, consider Reading Partners!

Preferred Qualifications

  • Students should have a commitment to literacy and a passion for working with elementary school students as well as community volunteer tutors. Experience with education, tutoring, or working with children is a plus, but not required - this is a great opportunity to develop or build on these skills.
