America Reads and Federal Work Study

America Reads
The mission of the America Reads program at Elon University is as follows:

America Reads Tutoring Program is committed to improving the literacy and mathematical skills of youth in Alamance County by cultivating within young students a love for learning and by providing local schools with trained tutors to support their education efforts. 

Students who qualify for a Federal Work Study award may be employed by America Reads to educate students of our local schools. Students apply and interview for positions, attend pre-service and ongoing trainings, tutor 4-15 hours a week and reflect regularly on their experiences. Please view our position description and application form or email us at Kernodle@elon.edu if you are interested.

Federal Work Study Service Learning Program
What an exciting way to earn income—making a difference in our local community!

Students who qualify for Federal Work Study and who have their own transportation may apply for designated jobs at our local partner community agencies. Positions, expectations and wages differ for each agency. Opportunities range greatly and include mentoring youth, providing clerical support and administering agency programs.
