We are recruiting AmeriCorps Group Leaders to serve as literacy educators in Oakland, Hayward, and Newark! At Super Stars Literacy, we believe that when a child is able to read, that child has the power to transform the future. Our AmeriCorps Group Leaders serve Monday-Friday at our partner schools in the East Bay, offering teachers extra student support during the day, and facilitating reading interventions after school. If you’re interested to explore a career in education, childcare, or simply want to make a difference here in the Bay Area, apply today!
Group Leader Position Description: Group Leaders (GLs) are full-time AmeriCorps members who serve in Title I elementary schools throughout the East Bay Area. GLs provide one-on-one and small group intervention support during the school day and lead an after-school literacy intervention program of no more than 16 students. Super Stars Literacy Group Leaders serve in a cohort of 30 members all of whom are interested in education, committed to making a lasting impact in their communities, and are excited about working with elementary age students. Prior to starting in the classroom, members participate in an extensive, two-week orientation, and throughout the 11 month service term meet weekly with SSL staff for continued training, coaching, and mentoring.
