Experience an Extraordinary Year
Reading Assist Fellows provide one-on-one reading instruction to students in kindergarten through third grade who face significant reading challenges; whether from learning disabilities like dyslexia, because English is not their first language, or because their low-income school lacks the resources to support them.
Your year as a Reading Assist Fellow will start with five weeks of full-time, graduate-level training (conducted online) before you’re embedded in a high-needs elementary school in Delaware for a full school year. You’ll work with up to eight students for 30-45 minutes a day and meet with an experienced coach each week for support and feedback.
Over 90% of students in Reading Assist’s program reach grade-level benchmarks by the end of the school year, accelerating their learning in all subject areas. Our Fellows often go on to teaching positions in a variety of K-12 subjects and graduate programs in policy, social work, speech pathology, and more.
