What’s What: Right now, schools are faced with the challenge of transitioning to remote and hybrid learning, bringing unprecedented challenges to educators, students, and parents. One of the challenges they will face is reading while remote learning. 

Amava Take: Learning Ally is on a mission to ease the transition to remote learning and ensure that students do not decline in their reading. To empower students to continue reading, they need volunteer help! Learning Ally is recruiting volunteers to assist in researching and identifying points of contact for over 4,500 schools. With these contacts, Learning Ally will be able to listen to and understand the needs of educators and implement changes to their solutions based on those needs. If you care about student literacy, this could be the virtual volunteering opportunity you’ve been waiting for. 

Questions and Answers:

Is there a training session available?

Yes. Volunteers will be invited to a Zoom meeting to meet their project lead, learn expectations, and be provided with their next steps to completing the volunteer assignment. 

What will I do in this role?

Once you complete training you will be given a list of schools to research for relevant  phone numbers, emails, names, and job titles. You will  be asked to keep a log of your research and templates will be provided.

Anything else I need to know? 

It’s super important that you maintain open communication with your Volunteer Coordinator and complete tasks by desired deadlines. We’ve got to work together to keep kids reading!
