Education Internship Position!

14 Sep

Interested in education? Want to help people learn? Think reading is a valuable skill for future generations to have? For UHPer’s interested in education or service, this internship puts undergrads in the classroom with at-risk third graders. Starting in October, A Wider Circle will work with public schools in Southeast D.C., helping students to reach proficiency in reading through tutoring.

Third grade is a critical year, marking the transition of a student from learning to read to reading to learn. Too often, students who test below proficiency level in reading at the end of third grade fall further and further behind in subsequent grades; this increases the likelihood for behavioral problems and school dropout. An internship in this new and ambitious program is a hands-on, meaningful, and challenging opportunity for those interested in helping underserved students to grow and succeed.
