Workforce Pathway Coaches provide short-term individualized tutoring to adults enrolled in ESOL or Adult Basic Education classes who are looking to enter the workforce or find a better job. They work one-on-one with students seeking employment to improve basic workforce preparation skills (resume-building, interviewing skills, or filling out job applications) and help students learn how to navigate the job search process in the United States.
Additionally, volunteers have the option to participate in quarterly job-skills workshops (for example, as workshop facilitators, mock interviewers, or in general support roles). This works well for those who prefer a shorter commitment.
Bilingual skills and/or experience working with adult immigrants, refugees, or English language learners is strongly desired but not required. The top 5 languages represented among our students are Amharic, Tigrinya, Spanish, Mandarin, and Somali, although combined our students speak over 40 languages. We are an equal opportunity employer working towards a culturally diverse workplace. People of color and bilingual/multilingual individuals are encouraged to apply.
