I am just wrapping up my first year as an Americorps Minnesota Reading Corps tutor.  I hope you will consider contacting us for a program.  There are over 1,000 volunteers in our state, in every community.  We are always recruiting and hope you will help us get the word out. Volunteers are needed all over our state.

 

I am just wrapping up my first year as an Americorps Minnesota Reading Corps tutor.  I hope you will consider contacting us for a program.  There are over 1,000 volunteers in our state, in every community.  We are always recruiting and hope you will help us get the word out. Volunteers are needed all over our state.

Looking for a summer program for your meetings?  Volunteers are available to share their experiences with your membership - if you'd like to invite speakers or receive materials to post at your location, contact Gil Towers at gtowers@servemnaction.org.  We are recruiting age 18 and up with a high school diploma or its equivalent. Do you know anyone 18 or over with a GED who is looking for an adventure? Check out the Americorps website! There are open positions for any interest you may have. The pay is not great, but the rewards are beyond your dreams. I have been a Minnesota Reading Tutor at Armatage Elementary school in SW Minneapolis this year, and will return next year. There are full time and part time jobs available all over the US. There are health plans included at no charge to you as well as an Education Award ($5,775) given at the end of service. You can use it towards further education, to pay off student loan debt, or even bank it for your children or grandchildren. The Americorps staff has renewed my faith in the future of our country. They are committed to making this world a better place in a kinder way than we are seeing daily in the news. Working with kids in kindergarten to grade 3 every day has been hilarious, touching, and heart wrenching. Seeing them improve their scores and for many becoming readers by the end of the year has been a joyful and rewarding experience for me. My youngest son is leaving in June for Texas where he will be part of an Americorps team. He will join the Texas Conservation Corps based out of Austin for 6 months...trail building, tree planting, removing invasive plants, and also disaster relief work. So please, feel free to pass this on to others…. mention Americorps to anyone you know who is looking for a change or time to get away from everything and think about what they want to do next. There is an adventure out there for everyone!
