Help Milwaukee students -- become a literacy tutor
The successful and growing Interfaith-MPS Tutor Program is looking for adults who are 55 years old and older to become literacy tutors. Literacy tutors are placed in MPS classrooms to help students with their literacy skills for at least 90 minutes per week. Tutors volunteer in K4 through 5th grade classrooms.
All tutors will go through a training program before they enter the classroom so that they can be efficient and effective literacy tutors. The minimum commitment is 90 minutes per week but a tutor can ask for additional hours -- just as many of the current tutors with the program have. The tutors would work in 9th Aldermanic District schools such as Barton School and Goodrich School, along with a few others.
The tutoring program has so far had great success with 82% of students showing a positive change in attitude, with 79% showing a positive change in their interest toward learning and 80% demonstrating improved academic engagement. The Interfaith-MPS tutor program is a great way to give back to the community in a program that has proven results with more than 150 tutors involved.
If you are interested in joining the program or learning more about it, please contact Marie Honel at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (414) 220-8683.
