Looking for a “cool” volunteer opportunity? Join us over ice cream as we share more about the Adult Literacy XPRIZE and give you a rundown of the volunteer roles.
Adult Literacy XPRIZE is a $7 million global competition to transform the lives of low-literate adults by tackling the largest obstacles to achieving basic literacy – access, retention, and scale. By creating mobile applications for existing devices that are relevant and effective, low-literate adults can learn on their own schedules, wherever they are.
Literacy XPRIZE is now in the launch phase, and Philadelphia, Dallas and LA were chosen to test the finalist apps. To successfully carry out this project, we need to recruit 500 volunteers to staff eight field sites across Philadelphia. Volunteers will serve as Sign-In/Out Volunteers, Intake Volunteers, Recruiters, CASAS Proctors and Team Leads.
United Way is proud to partner with Points of Light, Campaign For Working Families, Inc. and the PHL Adult Education to recruit volunteers for the Adult Literacy XPRIZE.
