826LA WRITE ON! SUMMER CAMP SUMMER ASSOCIATE
Based out of Echo Park or Mar Vista
826LA is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Our services are structured around the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. With this in mind we provide after-school tutoring, evening and weekend workshops, in-school tutoring, support for English language learners, and assistance with student publications. All of our free programs are challenging and enjoyable, and ultimately strengthen each student's power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice.
826LA is looking for a team of Summer Associates to assist in planning and running our 4-week Write On! Summer Camp created to support English Language Learners (ELL). Summer Associates work out of either our Mar Vista or Echo Park location. 826LA's Write On! Camp works with students ages 7 to 12 from under-resourced LAUSD Title 1 schools. The goal for Write On! Camp is to support these students as they become more confident writers, enthusiastic readers, strong communicators, and published authors. Summer Associates work with 826LA staff to implement lesson plans, and interact with and oversee volunteers and students.
The Summer Associates position is a full-time (40 hours a week) and short-term service opportunity. Applicants must be available between June 11th and August 19th.
