Colorado Reading Corps is a nationally replicated model that utilizes AmeriCorps Members, trained in early intervention literacy strategies, to provide one-on-one tutoring to kindergarten through third grade students who are not reading at grade level.
United Way of Larimer County launched Colorado Reading Corps in Thompson School District in August 2014. Upon completion of the first year of the program in Larimer County, results indicated that 422 students were served, 57.3% of them showing academic progress. In its second year, 738 students were served, 65.6% of which showed academic progress. During the most current academic year (2016-2017), results indicated that 807 students were served, with 70.1% showing academic progress.
Colorado Reading Corps is funded through a state grant from Serve Colorado, as well as matching funds from United Way’s Kids on Track Initiative. The tutoring program has had great success in school districts throughout Colorado, including Thompson School District, Estes Park School Districs, Jeffco Public Schools, Adams 12 Five Start Schools, Aurora Public Schools and Denver Public Schools.
Colorado Reading Corps is recruiting Elementary Literacy Tutors for the 2017-18 school year! An Elementary Literacy Tutor serves one-on-one with students (kindergarten through third grade) who need assistance with learning to read. The tutor will use scripted Reading Corps literacy interventions and conduct assessments to ensure students are on track to read at grade level. Tutors in this position will serve alongside school staff, teachers and coaches, setting tutoring schedules, maintaining consistent tutoring fidelity, and recording the progress of individual students by entering assessment data into an online database. Tutors must maintain confidentiality of all student records and test scores. The Elementary Literacy Tutor must also abide by the code of conduct of the school where they are placed. Tutors are provided with ongoing feedback and coaching from an Internal Coach, Master Coach and Program Coordinator/Manager. This is an AmeriCorps member position.
AmeriCorps engages more than 80,000 women and men in intensive service each year through more than 15,000 nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country. AmeriCorps members work directly in their communities to build capacity, help people in need, and get things done!
