Become a Reading Corps Scholar Coach!

posted Mar 30, 2017, 9:04 AM by Unknown user

Would you love to help children grow their reading skills and succeed in school? If your answer is yes, you can serve as a Scholar Coach with Minnesota Reading Corps at Sojourner Truth Academy! Whether you want to explore a career in education, re-enter the workforce, or give back to your community, you can be a child’s hero as a tutor. Last year, Minnesota Reading Corps provided direct services to more than 30,000 children in more than 700 sites across the state.

Serving as a Scholar coach means you are a part of systems level change in a school. Not only do Scholar coaches work together and with teachers to provide literacy interventions to close individual student achievement gaps, they also participate in school-wide initiatives to improve outcomes for all students. Scholar Coaches serve in a team environment to maximize collective impact in a school and receive training and support throughout the year so they have the tools to best serve their students and teachers. Scholar Coaches also benefit from incredible personal and professional growth during their year of service and go on to careers in education, graduate school, and beyond.

Tutors come from many backgrounds and include recent high school and college grads, career changers, stay-at-home parents, and retirees. With extensive training, support from onsite coaches, and evidence-based strategies, Reading Corps tutors are well-equipped to change lives.  Tutors may earn a living allowance, education award, and federal student loan forbearance, and will have the chance to make a real difference in the life of a child.
