Student Life: America Reads
America Reads Program
     
We are currently accepting America Reads applications for the 2008-2009 school year.
 
America Reads Tutorial Program
This is a federally funded work-study program where students tutor elementary through high school age children within the areas of reading and math. Currently we are working with the St. Louis Public Schools District, and four community centers throughout the city.

Students who are interested in the program must complete an America Reads application. The student's name is submitted to financial aid to inquire if the individual is eligible for federal work study. Upon receiving documentation of eligibility from financial aid an interview will be arranged.

Training for America Reads program is conducted at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters, but we accept applications year-round. Students are trained on educational techniques to utilize when tutoring reading and math skills to elementary, middle and high school students.
 
   
 
 
Visit the America Reads National Website for more information about this exciting program.
   
The current rate of pay is $8.00 per hour for work-study eligible students.
 
Not Federal Work-Study eligible? We'd love to have you volunteer with America Reads, and help make a difference in the life of a St. Louis child!
