Greet all who come to Aquinas Literacy Center on Thursday afternoons! Our Thursday afternoon greeters helps Aquinas Literacy Center embody our mission of hospitality by welcoming everyone who walks through our doors. We are looking for a greeter to assist for at least 2 hours on Thursday afternoons.

As a Thursday afternoon greeter, you must be punctual, friendly, and someone who makes others feel welcome. You must be comfortable interacting with immigrants and patient with individuals who speak limited English. Basic Spanish or Mandarin Chinese would be helpful but is not required. You should also be comfortable being interrupted often and able to entertain yourself during slow times (such as bringing a book to read).

As a Thursday afternoon greeter, you may occasionally be asked to assist with administrative tasks, such as filing and making copies, if you are able and willing to do so.

For 20 years, Aquinas Literacy Center has been empowering adults by providing English as a Second Language instruction through individualized tutoring. We do so in an environment that respects and reverences individuals. We enable learners to transform their lives by acquiring skills to become successful parents, productive workers and responsible citizens. ALC is sponsored by the Adrian Dominican Sisters.
