AmeriCorps

AmeriCorps members with BookSpring serve across BookSpring’s Continuum of Literacy programs (Rx, Ed, and Go) to enable children to increase the number of books at home and through a network of other non-profits.

• Create and conduct thematic and academically aligned motivational reading activities for approximately 5 on site events at schools and online using a variety of kits and digital resources.
• Read specially selected children’s books aloud to small groups of children in a variety of settings, including in person and remotely in live and recorded video to support at home reading.
• Facilitate and present parent weekly training workshops in childcare settings and through videoconferencing.
• Coordinate book distribution program facilitation on site and through custom selected shipped packages directly into homes.
• Conduct site visits of clinics, schools, and community centers using a rubric to report back on program quality.
• Attend required AmeriCorps trainings and fulfill the requirements of AmeriCorps service.
• Deliver books and instructional materials to program participants.

This location requires a service commitment of 675 hours. Benefits include a living allowance of $6,750 and an education award of $2,474.

Applicants are encouraged to apply early as applications are considered on a rolling basis until all positions are filled. Qualified applicants are screened and interviewed by both Equal Heart and a partner agency before any formal offer is made.  Applicants must meet the following minimum criteria:

✔ Available for the entire duration of the program
✔ 17 years old or older by program start date
✔ U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident
✔ Commitment to serve the community!

We believe this role would be great for college students, primary caregivers, career changers, retirees, and anyone wanting to engage in public service at a higher level of commitment than a casual volunteer.  Hybrid remote/in-person at our offices and at program sites across Central Texas.  Bi-lingual Spanish/English would be very helpful but is not required. Apply by August 19, 2022, for fullest consideration.
