The Bullhead City Literacy Program (BHCLP), which was established in 2010, is in dire need of a new Literacy Program Coordinator. BHCLP is a 100% volunteer organization that provides free tutoring to children and adults in the Bullhead City area in reading and other subject areas. But without new leadership, this invaluable community service will no longer exist.
“The coordinator is what keeps the program going. They recruit tutors, conduct outreach to the community about available services, and match prospective students with the most appropriate tutors for their needs,” said Bruce Carter, Board President of the Workplace Education and Literacy Coalition of Mohave County (WELCOME). “WELCOME supports the literacy programs in Mohave County, and we will provide training, organizational and financial support for the new BHCLP coordinator. This is a very rewarding volunteer opportunity where you’ll see the direct positive impact of helping others achieve greater success in their lives.”
Duties for the Volunteer Literacy Coordinator include:
Recruiting and training volunteer tutors with support from WELCOME.
Conducting regular tutor meetings to share ideas and discuss strategies and student progress.
Promoting the program within the community.
Matching students with tutors.
Supplying necessary reading materials and workbooks for tutors and students.
Tracking basic statistics on activity such as number of tutors, number of students, tutoring subjects, etc.
Representing BHCLP at virtual quarterly WELCOME Board meetings.
“You don’t need experience for this volunteer position,” said Carter, “but patience and compassion are crucial.”
