The school liaison program will enhance communication among tutors, teachers, principals, school coordinators, and the Denison coordinator. School liaisons will clarify expectations, provide opportunities feedback, and solve problems among all constituents. Liaisons will be important leaders in the America Reads program. School liaisons will have duties both on-site at their particular school and on-campus.
Responsibilities at the partner school:
This is a paid work-study position requiring approximately 1-2 hours per week in addition to regular tutoring hours. The hours may vary from week to week and from school to school; with busiest times at the beginning of each semester (may be 2-3 hours a week then). The program is open to rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Both returning and new tutors are encouraged to apply. Liaisons must have defensive driving or reliable personal transportation. This is a full year commitment. As this is only the second year of the program, it may change as we discern the needs of campus and school. School liaisons will have the opportunity to shape the course and direction of the program.
School liaisons will be selected based on the following criteria: application, interview, history of service with America Reads, and financial aid eligibility. Liaisons will be selected by the Denison coordinator and members of the Advisory Board.
Applications are due Monday, March 25 by 4:00pm to the Center for Service-Learning. Interviews will be
held later that week. Liaisons will be notified by Friday, April 4th. They are expected to attend an offcampus retreat on Sunday, April 6 from 2-5pm—note and please save the date. Liaisons must also
schedule a meeting with the liaison school and lay the groundwork for the fall semester before they leave
campus for the summer.
