• Tutors Needed for AmeriCorps Monterey County United for Literacy

    South County Residents Encouraged to Apply

    With the goal of creating safer, smarter and healthier communities, AmeriCorps Monterey County United for Literacy is seeking tutors to read with students at schools in Salinas, Soledad, King City and Greenfield.  The program’s mission is to enable Monterey County children to read well and independently by the end of the third grade so they can read to learn in the fourth grade and beyond.

    Tutors serve at least 40 hours a week, providing one-on-one or small group reading instruction to students in kindergarten through fourth grade. Tutoring sessions take place during and after school.

    The program begins September 1, 2015 and runs for 11 months, ending July 31, 2016. South County residents are highly encouraged to apply.

    AmeriCorps members receive a monthly living stipend of $1,210/month for 11 months, a Segal Education Award of $5,550 upon successful completion of 1700 tutoring hours, and student loan forbearance while serving.

    Applicants must have graduated from high school or received a GED certificate. A Bachelor’s or Associate’s Degree is preferred. Experience working with children or in education is helpful, although tutors will receive training and orientation.

    AmeriCorps Monterey County United for Literacy is a program operated by the Monterey County Office of Education.

    During the 2014-2015 school year, AmeriCorps team members collectively served over 50,000 hours as reading tutors for more than 500 students.

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm.
