Literacy Fellows Program (LFP)

The Sherman Center partnered with the Shriver Center to develop the Literacy Fellows Program as a collaboration to provide literacy volunteers for two Sherman Center partner schools: Bay Brook and Curtis Bay. Literacy Fellows, UMBC undergraduate students with interests in education and community service, are enrolled in The Shriver Center’s 096 Community Service & Learning Practicum (Leadership Section) and are responsible for recruiting and organizing other UMBC students to serve as classroom literacy tutor volunteers for young learners.

Literacy Fellows receive a stipend, work a minimum of four hours per week, and manage an average of six volunteers at their assigned schools. Designated school staff and UMBC faculty provide support and guidance to facilitate their work. Contact Melissa Bailey at mbailey5@umbc.edu for more information.
