Job Description - Site Coordinator

CONTEXT

Soar Detroit, a literacy tutoring ministry, began in 2005 and has reached over 1000 students, who on average improved more than two grade levels each year in just two days per week of after-school tutoring.  As current literacy statistics show that only 10% of Detroit third graders are reading at or above their grade level, momentum is building to scale up this literacy program, with the goal of serving 10,000 students each year. We are building a world-class team that will join us in partnering with the Church in Detroit and educational entities to address the literacy crisis we face. Our goal is to see 66% of Detroit third graders reading at or above grade level by 2030.
