A reminder from our colleagues at Dogwood Health Trust that the submission deadline for Dogwood’s request for proposals (RFP) focused on the early childhood education workforce is just over two weeks away. This program is specifically for proposals designed to stabilize and grow the early childhood education workforce in Dogwood’s 18 western counties plus the Qualla Boundary. You can learn more about the program and watch the info session here. The application deadline is Friday, September 16, 2022 at 11:59 pm.

And from our colleagues at NC Ed Corps…
NC Education Corps is recruiting its next cohort of high-impact literacy tutors to support students across the state throughout the 2022-2023 school year. Corps members are employed (yes, paid!) by their local school districts to serve as part-time literacy tutors — adding critical capacity in elementary classrooms across North Carolina.
Tutors will receive high-dosage tutor training and ongoing support from NC Education Corps and their school district. The pay rate for this role ranges from $15 – $25/hour, dependent on experience.
An ideal tutor is someone who is:
- Passionate about supporting students, teachers, and public schools.
- Flexible enough to commit at least three days a week (10-15 or 15-25 hours/week).
- Positive, upbeat, and excited to make a difference.
NC Education Corps knows that your potential to make a difference in a child’s life is defined by your capacity to be there and encourages individuals of all backgrounds to apply, even if you don’t have a degree or experience in education. Interested individuals can learn more and apply at nceducationcorps.org/
