Is literacy a passion for you? Southwest Valley Literacy Association is searching for a leader for our non-profit organization. We are a local literacy organization serving the cities of Avondale, Tolleson, Goodyear, Litchfield Park and Buckeye in the West Valley of Phoenix.

For more than 40 years, Southwest Valley Literacy has taught adults English language skills enabling them to gain confidence, improve their job potential, and allowing them to become fully engaged in the community.

In this volunteer position, you will be responsible for overall management and leadership of this vibrant organization of volunteers. Your organizational skills and forward vision will lead to great results for this organization and the community.

The Leader oversees the overall ESL program (which includes a seasoned volunteer team for key functions) as well as one paid, part-time bilingual office support position whose responsibility is student intake and the office administration of the ESL program.

Overall funding for this program comes from the cities we serve plus donations from private individuals. Maintaining the fiscal health of the organization allows it to grow its volunteer tutor group to match up with eager students from the five cities we support. A detail oriented leader with strong organization, communications skills and education background will succeed well in this position. Opportunities exist to expand the Board and cultivate new volunteer positions to help run the organization.

Southwest Valley Literacy is an affiliate member of ProLiteracy--an internationally recognized organization. To learn more about Southwest Valley Literacy, please visit us at www.swvalleyliteracy.org.
