This month brings the start of the program year for the Texas Family Literacy AmeriCorps program, another program here at the Literacy Coalition of Central Texas. Through our AmeriCorps program, we’re able to place 9 AmeriCorps members teaching ESL at 7 different sites in central Texas, along with 10 AmeriCorps members placed in ESL programs in Houston through the Houston Center for Literacy. These members complete the English Forward Instructor Training as part of their training before they start teaching, and gain access to the Literacy Forward Web Portal, the English Forward Curriculum, and a suite of other resources to support them in their instruction.
We are excited to welcome this year’s AmeriCorps members, and we look forward to supporting them during their year of service!
AmeriCorps member positions are still available through Texas Family Literacy AmeriCorps. To learn more about the available positions, along with any other staff positions open at the Literacy Coalition, click here.
