CDC seeking instructor for popular program

The Joseph & Sarah Carter Community Development Corporation, formerly the Historic East Linden Project, is looking for an after-school instructor for Study Buddies, one of its most successful programs.

Over the past 13 years, the CDC has spearheaded the revitalization of the once crime-plagued community. With assistance from residents as well as the Kennett Square borough police department, the neighborhood has become a safe, well-tended, child-focused community.

On a typical school afternoon, elementary students fill the basement of the Bethel AME Church on East Linden Street for Study Buddies, a program that provides homework assistance, computer access, snacks, and dinner from a rotating group of volunteers that includes high school students as well as police officers.

The Carter CDC is looking for an instructor to oversee the program and create innovative instruction that helps “bridge the gap” for children from families with limited academic backgrounds. “This is also a chance to be a part of a wonderful, close, diverse community, and the right candidate will find this a remarkably enriching experience,” said a Carter CDC press release.

The position would begin on Sept. 13. For more information, contact LaToya Myers, the Carter CDC’s executive director at LaToya Myers or or (484) 467-6927. A full job description can be found at
