Support Kid Success through a virtual literacy tutoring program! 

We know that child literacy is a key indicator of success later in life. Therefore, Brilliant Detroit puts a strong emphasis on early childhood literacy programs. We work with several partners to provide literacy instruction to students K-3. Each program offers a slightly different experience and schedule. We are happy to connect with you to provide further details and help determine which program would be the best fit for you. There are a few elements that are constant across all of our tutoring offerings, which we have outlined below.

Program Details and Next Steps:

We are currently recruiting tutors for the summer iterations of our literacy programs. Our summer programs begin on July 10th and run until August 24th. We ask that volunteers commit to certain days and times weekly for the entirety summer session. We will also offer tutoring during the school year beginning in October.

We are looking for individuals who can commit to volunteering weekly after school for 30-45 minutes at a time. All of our literacy tutoring programs operate within the window of 4-7pm from Monday to Thursday with a variety of start times in that range. Consistency has shown to make a huge impact on our students' literacy and confidence, so please make sure you are able to attend each week. All of our tutoring programs have students and tutors meet one-on-one via Zoom or at one of our sites to read together and engage in literacy games and activities. To become a tutor, one must attend a program training, pass a background check (we cover the cost), and attend a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion training. 

Once we receive your interest in our tutoring programs, we will reach out to you to learn more about you and your goals in volunteering. At that time we will also share more details about our programs and answer any questions you may have. Through this conversation, we will be able to determine which program best suits you.
