The Dan River Year AmeriCorps program, operated through the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research (IALR), is dedicated to addressing community needs in Southern Virginia. We mobilize AmeriCorps members in a community-supported environment to build capacity in the region, strengthen community involvement and address pressing needs. AmeriCorps members focus on building the region’s science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and literacy capacity.
We are seeking In-School and Out-of-School Tutors who can provide direct and indirect support to site(s) during school and after school and for family STEM activities. Members will focus on building and introducing curriculum and activities for students, helping prepare them for middle school by improving their literacy, math and/or STEM skills.
“Working with students this summer has been a privilege, and witnessing their growth and curiosity has been incredibly rewarding. From this experience, I am reminded of the power of education and the importance of inspiring the next generation of innovators. Thank you, AmeriCorps, for providing me with this incredible opportunity to serve and make a difference in the lives of young learners. My time here has been nothing short of life-changing, and I will cherish it always.” – Luis Tovar, Dan River Year AmeriCorps, Summer 2023.
