North Dakota Reading Corps seeks tutors

JAMESTOWN — The North Dakota Reading Corps is seeking literacy tutors in five cities after the NDRC received an $800,000 federal grant last month to improve childhood reading proficiency in kindergarten through third grade.

The South East Educational Cooperative, the agency that oversees the NDRC, said the money will be used to hire and train an additional 40 AmeriCorps volunteers who will work in 36 schools in Jamestown, Fargo, West Fargo, Bismarck and Mandan.

Tutors must commit to either 450 or 675 total hours with the program during the school year from August to May, which works out to about 15 to 20 hours per week.
