Skills

YOU ARE FLEXIBLE 

The problem of illiteracy is ever moving and always presenting new difficulties. As a start-up, we are pioneers of sorts so you need to be ready to learn, get creative and solve problems on you own. We strive to be organized and structured, but often work here forces us to be creative and paint on blank canvases. 

YOU CARE ABOUT THE DETAILS

We care about our brand and movement deeply. This means that every action we do is done with a clear focus and lots of attention to detail. From program process to emails, we are meticulous, crossing every "t" and dotting every "i." 

YOU ARE A SELF-STARTER

You are excited to identify a problem and find solutions. If we give you a project we won't need to hold your hand and can trust that you will do a great job on anything we throw your way. 

YOU CARE ABOUT THE INDIVIDUAL

We value every individual no matter who they are. To be on our team you have to be a team-player: respect the dignity of others and work to serve them in everything you do.


Commitment

You will start in the summer as soon as school let's out and work with us until you need to get back. We expect you to be in the office 4 days a week and 30 hours per week. 


Compensation

We value your time; therefore, we will be able to compensate you for the work you are contributing during the summer. We will also work with your school to give you course credit (if applicable).
