Sherman Center/Shriver Center Literacy Tutors Needed!

Interested in helping kids build their literacy skills?

The Sherman Center/Shriver Center Literacy Fellows Program is a collaboration to provide literacy tutors for two Sherman Center partner schools: Bay Brook and Curtis Bay. Literacy tutors, UMBC undergraduate students with interests in education and community service, are enrolled in The Shriver Center’s 096 Community Service & Learning Practicum (Leadership Section), and responsible for recruiting and organizing other UMBC students to serve as classroom-based literacy tutors for young learners (grades K-3).

We are currently looking for tutors interested in working with 1st graders at Curtis Bay Elementary-Middle School that are available on both Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00-11:00AM (transportation will be provided).

For those that are interested, please reach out to our literacy fellows Luwam Gebreyesus (geb1@umbc.edu) or Vrinda Deshpande (Vdesh1@umbc.edu).

We will be holding our official interest meeting on Friday, September 21st at 5:00PM in the Shriver Center. 

Volunteer tutoring positions are still open!
