New Volunteer Opportunity for Education Students!

After-School Literacy Program at Park Avenue Youth and Family Services is looking for community oriented individuals who are willing and able to make a commitment to the academic improvement of children in South Minneapolis.
Literacy Tutors are needed to work one-on-one with children grades K-8 who need support in reading. In order to insure the child’s success, the tutor must be committed to spending 1.5 hours per week on on-site tutoring. Opportunities are also available for those wishing to work with Spanish-speaking students.
We offer training in various teaching methods and motivational techniques throughout the year, and each child is provided with individual learning goals and a lesson plan by a licensed teacher.
Key Qualifications:

1. Must possess strong reading and writing skills in English and/or Spanish
2. Must be able to tutor for 1.5 hours at least one evening a week (M-Th, 2-8 pm). A 3-9 month commitment is expected.
3. Must be able to spend a brief amount of time preparing before each tutoring session.
This is a prime opportunity for you to gain experience in education, and you will be part of the effort to improve the academic performance of underserved children in our community.
