America Reads Orientations – Fall 2015



In order to become an America Reads Tutor in 2014-2015 - whether you’re earning a Federal Work-study Award or serving as a volunteer - you are required to attend an orientation.  At the orientation you will learn:
  • The mission of America Reads Program
  • The Title I elementary schools we work with
  • What you are expected to do as an America Reads tutor
  • How to tutor children and improve literacy skills
  • How to best present your tutoring on your resume
  • How to best present your tutoring on your e-portfolio
  • About background check.  Where to get a background check, and how to be reimbursed for the expense.
  • How to register as a volunteer with the Salt Lake City School District
  • How to create a tutoring schedule that works for you and your elementary school site



Volunteer tutors may leave after the first half the orientation. Students tutoring to earn their Federal Work-Study financial aid award will stay for the entire orientation and learn:

  1. How to fill out all required SLCC paperwork to be hired as a work-study tutor
  2. How to maximize and fully earn your work-study financial aid


READY TO GET STARTED?

Choose ONE orientation that fits your schedule.

If you have been awarded work-study from SLCC Financial Aid, bring your federal work-study packet, driver’s license or Utah issued ID or One Card, and Social Security card.

If you are joining America Reads as a volunteer without work-study, just bring yourself.
