    Literacy Tutor (2020-21, AmeriCorps)


    Do you believe that literacy is a human right?

    The Literacy Lab is an AmeriCorps partner program providing early literacy intervention for students ages 3 to grade 3 through individualized support. We partner with school districts in Springfield and Holyoke, as well as other cities across the country. During their one-year service term, tutors receive training and support, a modest cost-of-living stipend, health insurance, and are eligible for SNAP benefits if they choose to use them. 

    The Literacy Lab works to close the achievement gap by providing pre-K and elementary schools with evidence-based literacy intervention, full-time literacy tutors to implement the model, and assessment tools and a coaching support structure that ensures the success of the program and students. If you have an interest in education, non-profits, social justice, or community empowerment, we encourage you to consider our one-year program!
