America Reads is a federal work study approved program of academic tutoring. College students are placed in local elementary schools and community organizations to enhance their after school enrichment programs.
This is a regular commitment, scheduled one or more days a week, usually between the hours of 3:30pm and 5:00pm. Some time slots may be available during the school day as well. Transportation is not provided, although carpools may be arranged and some programs are located within walking distance of the college. The hourly salary is paid by Moravian College at the approved work study rate. Education credit may be possible in lieu of salary (must be approved by Camie Modjadidi, Education Department Field Coordinator). Current criminal and child abuse clearances are required.
Applications and clearance forms are available at the Community Service Office located in the Center for Leadership and Service in the Haupert Union Building (HUB). You may also e-mail the Community Service Coordinator for additional information.
Moravian College encourages persons with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation or have questions about the physical access provided, please e-mail Katie Dantsin, or call 610-861-1498.
