We are looking for Evening English Teachers for our summer semester. Come to the English Learning Center to teach English to approximately 10 students, who are Adult English Language Learners.
No prior teaching experience is necessary. We train our volunteers at our site and we also require volunteers to attend a 12-hour Minnesota Literacy Council within 90 days of volunteering. Some exceptions to this training apply. Background check for all volunteers is also part of application process. Curriculum is provided.
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 over 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 160 volunteers teach all the program classes.
For those interested in a career in ESL, 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!
