Are you a public or school librarian with experience working with at-risk or homeless young people? The ALA Public Programs Office may have an opportunity for you to be an advisor for the Great Stories Club.
Great Stories Club started receiving grants in 2006 and is a “literary reading and discussion program for underserved and at-risk populations, particularly young adults.” As a librarian advisor, your role would be to “plan, develop, and deliver print, web-based, and in-person programming support and learning experiences for GSC grantees, and also participate in a collaborative planning process involving ALA staff, representatives from funding agencies, literature scholars, and creative artists.”
If you are at all interested in this opportunity, be aware that applications are due by 5pm CST on November 18th! Get information regarding desired qualifications and how to apply by clicking here.
