Looking for a work-study or volunteer position for the fall semester or year?
Want to meet some of the most interesting kids in the District?
Love to read?
Check out this great opportunity as a reading tutor as part of DC Reads.
Three out of four public elementary school students in DC perform at or below basic levels in reading and math. All GW students are invited to be a part of the solution by joining DC Reads to tutor elementary school students, to help them succeed in the classroom and beyond!
This is a semester or year-long commitment available to volunteers and to those who are eligible for Federal Work-Study. Applications are due on Friday, Sept. 7th (priority) or Friday, Sept. 21st (final).
The UHP’s own Preston Whitt worked as a tutor his freshman year:
This was an amazing way to get to know parts of the District I would otherwise never have experienced. The kids are wonderful (and even the ones who try your patience are hilarious). I highly recommend volunteering or working for DC Reads, especially to incoming freshman. It will really shape your four years in a great, unique way.
