ORGANIZATION: Jamaica Plain Community Centers Adult Learning Program

  • 106 people are interested

Tutors provide valuable assistance to students and teachers in Adult Education Program. We help adults attain their High School Equivalency Diploma (previously known as GED exam) and teach English to immigrants (English as a Second Language.) Tutors volunteer at least one morning or evening a week and may assist teachers in the classroom or work outside of class one on one or with a small group of students.

Approaches vary: tutors may review classwork, help with homework, bring in their own materials or work on something of the student's choosing like a letter to a landlord, or studying for the Citizenship Exam. Tutors may also help students with writing resumes, preparing for job interviews or other career advancing skills.

Tutors receive training and ongoing support from the Volunteer Coordinator as well as the teachers, and may take advantage of free professional development opportunities.

Mission Statement

The mission of the ALP is to provide an innovative, learner-centered, and participatory educational program to educationally disadvantaged and English Learner adults.


The Adult Learning Program (ALP) was established in direct response to the demands for basic education, employment-related skill building, and ESOL services among local adults. Our goal is to help students attain the education, skills, and self confidence that will enable them to more fully participate in their communities and in the education of their children, and that will further enhance opportunities for employment, and personal development. In addition, we seek to provide the tools to enable historically disenfranchised individuals and communities, including refugees and immigrants, to more fully access, utilize, participate in, and impact the resources and development of their city and their communities. ALP currently offers 6 levels of English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), three levels of ABE from basic literacy through HiSET (formerly GED).
