READ USA’s Literacy Tutoring program is measurably advancing grade-level reading proficiency in elementary students across Duval County. To date, thousands of students have made literacy progress on standardized tests, while also forming impactful connections with our teen tutors who are earning a living wage, improving their own reading proficiency, and learning valuable workforce development skills.
Literacy Tutoring is positively impacting thousands of lives in our community – and we welcome you to be a part of it!
READ USA is seeking Assessors for our Literacy Tutoring program. Assessors are responsible for administering assessments and reporting data for elementary students using standardized and evidence-based measures. Assessors are paid $25/hour, receive paid (mandatory) training with supporting materials, and must have a bachelor’s degree or higher. A background check and fingerprinting are also required before working in the schools. Assessments begin in April 2023 – which will be here before we know it!

READ USA Attends FSCJ Literacy Fair
Earlier this month, READ USA had the pleasure of participating in Florida State College at Jacksonville’s Literacy Fair. Hundreds of families came together to celebrate a love of reading, enjoy games and activities – and receive free books! We were grateful to be able to provide free, brand-new and gently used books to attendees – we love seeing young smiling faces when they choose a new book to take home and enjoy!
Thank you to FSCJ for hosting this wonderful family-fun event!
