About

We are looking for dedicated volunteers to teach in our ESL math classes. Afternoon Math classes, 12:00-1:00pm Wednesday.

Math teachers work on developing math language skills (learning English words for "add", "fraction", "equals") along with basic math skills. No prior teaching experience is necessary. The math is pretty basic, and for the most part, teaching English while practicing math skills is the greatest challenge and delight of this unique volunteer opportunity.

The English Learning Center is a program of Our Saviour's Community Services, a community-based nonprofit. We provide English (ESL), math, citizenship, computer and reading classes as well as advocacy to adult immigrants and refugees in the Phillips neighborhood of South Minneapolis.

Currently the English Learning Center serves nearly 400 adult students each year. It has become a well-known community center for immigrants and refugees from all around the world. We are a volunteer-based organization: over 100 volunteers teach all the program classes.

We train our volunteers at our site and we also require volunteers to attend a 12-hour tutor training within 90 days of volunteering. Some exceptions to this training apply. Background check for all volunteers is also part of application process.

For those interested in a career in ESL or adult basic education, volunteering here is an excellent way to begin or continue gaining experience. For everyone: it is a great way to connect with others in your community! Apply here: http://oscs-mn.org/elc-volunteer-application/ Email your questions! volunteer@englishlc.org
