Austin Partners in Education

My name is Elena Lorío and I coordinate a volunteer tutoring program at a non-profit called Austin Partners in Education.  The volunteer program, called Classroom Coaching, supports elementary and middle school students in the Austin ISD.  The goal of the Classroom Coaching programs is to help students in underserved communities make progress in reading, writing, and math.

Did you know that research shows students who do not read on grade level by third grade arefour times more likely to drop out of high school?  Research also shows that tutoring can make a difference and lead to academic gains.  Caring, positive relationships are key to helping students have a successful future.

I would like to invite you and your students to participate as a volunteer in one of our Classroom Coaching programs.  Our volunteers tutor groups of three students and follow a curriculum.  The program takes place once per week on either Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays, in the students’ classroom for 45 minutes.  Volunteers pick the subject, age group, day, time and school location most convenient for them.  We hope our volunteers might experience the reward of knowing they helped a child.

I would really appreciate if you could send this message to your students or if you could include this information in your weekly digest.  And if  you are interested in being a Classroom Coach please sign up today using the following link:

Thank you for your time and consideration.  If you have any questions, or would like to learn more about the program, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best,

Elena Lorío

Connecting the Community and the Classroom

Become a Radio Host and DJ!

My name is Clint Anderson and I am member of Asian Radio℠, a Texas-based nonprofit that has launched and supported three FM radio programs in the Austin area since 2009. These programs are focused on promoting East Asian and Asian American music and culture to the local community, and are produced and broadcast by volunteers who were recruited and trained by Asian Radio members. Asian Radio’s network of shows reaches an estimated 20,000 listeners every week, and our network has recruited and trained more than 25 individuals– most of whom had no previous knowledge of or experience in broadcasting.

Two of Asian Radio’s affiliate programs, which broadcast weekly on KVRX, are each looking to recruit two new members who are students at the University of Texas at Austin. Our research and previous recruiting efforts have shown that there is a significant number of interested and suitable applicants in the Department of Asian Studies.

Below is information about the radio programs and the application process. We would greatly appreciate it if you could please forwarded this information to the appropriate party or parties.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration.

Become a Radio Host and DJ!
The following two local, volunteer-based, East Asian and Asian American-focused radio programs are currently accepting applications. Successful candidates will be thoroughly trained how to produce, host, and engineer a live radio broadcast, and will, after an apprenticeship period and certification process, become a co-host and DJ on the live broadcast team.
