America Reads places work study students with children in various educational, literacy-based environments throughout Latah County in elementary schools, after school programs, reading programs, and early childhood programs. Work study students may assist a young child or elementary student with reading, writing, language or math skills, or assist with preparation of events or programs. Complete directions and instructions at site placements from a teacher or professional personnel will be given before students begin.
Students are expected to dress and present themselves in a professional manner. They will be expected to use appropriate language at all times. The students will be viewed as role models to children and youth that they work with.
