The Adult Education program is in need of classroom assistants during our ESL classes on Zoom. Classroom assistants are individuals who are available during scheduled ESL class times to assist the teacher in Breakout Rooms with groups of learners, provide one-on-one student assistance, and other needs as requested by the instructor.
We provide experience working with immigrant and refugee students, as well as assisting in an ESL classroom. Each class instructor will prepare the lessons and materials for the day. Our volunteers need to be flexible because the ways they assist will vary based on the needs of the class/students/teachers.
Currently, we need classroom assistants who are available during the following class times:
Monday-Thursday 12:00-2:30 pm
Instructors are welcome to volunteer for as few or as many class times as they wish. We ask that all volunteers be available for at least one (2.5 hour) class per week for a minimum of ten weeks. Volunteers must be proficient using a computer and on Zoom and will be expected to utilize Breakout Rooms and share class materials on their screen. All volunteers must be extremely patient and flexible when working with our wonderful learners.
We require all volunteers to submit a background check as well as attend a virtual orientation.
