Looking to make a difference in your community and gain valuable teaching experience? Community Impact at Columbia University is looking for volunteers to teach high school level math and language arts to help adults in our community achieve high school equivalency!

Teachers will work with students to improve both literacy and math skills in preparation for the New York GED exam, which provides our students with high school equivalency. Teachers will have multiple opportunities for professional development and training, the chance to collaborate with experienced professionals in adult education, and help develop curriculum around the TASC exams to ensure student success.

Volunteer commitment is a minimum of 2 hours/week, though volunteers are encouraged to teach two sections of either math or language arts. Classes are offered Monday-Thursday from 10:30-1:30pm and 6:00-8:30pm, and will begin the last week of January. Volunteer commitment is a minimum of 12 weeks to teach for the semester.

Community Impact at Columbia University is dedicated to making a difference and improving the lives of adults in our community. Join our experienced, dedicated teaching staff and become a part of the movement.

To apply, please email your resume to our team at hse@communityimpact.columbia.edu.

Mission Statement

Community Impact is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to serving disadvantaged people in the Morningside Heights, Harlem, and Washington Heights communities. Community Impact strives to advance the public good by fostering meaningful opportunities for students, staff, and faculty of Columbia University in order to provide high-quality programs and instill the importance of life-long service.

Description

From its earliest inception as a single service initiative formed in 1981 by Columbia University undergraduates Joe DeGenova and David Joyce, Community Impact has grown into Columbia University’s largest student service organization and a primary interface between the University and the Morningside Heights and Harlem communities. As Community Impact integrated itself into the neighborhood’s social safety-net, students identified and responded to new community needs, expanding the number of services available to clients and working towards transforming the organization into an integrated service network with a strong education emphasis. We currently provide a multitude of services, including continuing adult education programs to help community members obtain high school equivalance. We offer ESL classes for immigrant families, and a workforce development program to help our community gain meaningful employment.
