Do you want to help solve Arizona's literacy crisis? Gain valuable teaching and mentoring experience while facilitating our unique program.  

RBBB's after-school reading comprehension program offers community members the opportunity and training to impact our education system by helping to build literacy and leadership skills in students across the Phoenix metro area. We are currently seeking bilingual English and Spanish speakers to facilitate weekly check-ins with families enrolled in our virtual literacy program, Read Better Be Better At Home.

As a RBBB Site Leader, you will work directly with families to provide guidance on program implementation, track student progress, and conduct weekly check-ins. This is a fully remote position with the opportunity to transition into an after-school on-site role once the traditional Read Better Be Better program resumes. 

We are seeking applicants with strong computer and technology skills, including knowledge of applications used for video conferencing and other business functions. Fluency in both Spanish and English is required. Only applicants residing in the Phoenix metropolitan area will be considered.

About Read Better Be Better

Read Better Be Better (RBBB) is a non-profit organization founded in 2014 to address Arizona's literacy crisis. Read Better Be Better inspires and equips middle school youth leaders to help third-grade students struggling with reading comprehension. The program trains 6th-8th graders to lead 3rd graders through a curriculum that empowers both students. Third graders gain the literacy skills needed to achieve academic and life-long success, and middle schoolers engage in service learning. RBBB's organizational values are simple: Be Excellent. Be Kind. These values define the organization, its programs, and its expectations.
