Members create, enhance or expand literacy-focused and programs for low-income, or immigrant or refugee children, youth, adults or families. In Summer Reads, about 70 members serve as children’s literacy mentors for 8 weeks over the summer, bringing literacy to life through fun and enriching activities. *MUST HAVE completed at least one year of full-time national service (full-time AmeriCorps (1700 hours), VISTA, NCCC or Peace Corps) prior to start. *ADDITIONAL BENEFITS: Literacy Leaders receive individual professional development funds, monthly trainings, grocery cards, housing/utilities assistance funds, an Employee Assistance Program and more.
