Center for Changing Lives (CCL)’s vision is a community where everyone thrives. Too often, lack of resource and economic opportunity limit people’s choices and capacity to achieve their goals and visions. CCL partners with those held back by lack of resource and economic opportunity to uncover possibilities, overcome barriers, and realize their potential in the form of partnership through coaching, training and educating, skill-building, and advocacy. CCL’s core services of financial, employment, and resource development coaching are supported by the time, skills, and dedication of volunteers.
CCL offers Computer User Support and Administrative Skills Training Programs as part of the employment coaching program. These programs are Bridges-to-Careers programs designed to support participants in setting and achieving their financial, training, and career goals in IT and Administration pathways. Participants receive a comprehensive coaching-led approach that puts the participant first and works through financial capacity building, career readiness, foundational digital literacy skills, and continued support as they complete the course and obtain certifications and employment.
As a Bridges-to-Careers program, members in these programs complete TABE and Digital Literacy assessments prior to and post programming and work on reading, math computation, and applied math skills while in the classroom. These fundamental skills support members with larger concepts as they continue on to their career paths.
CCL is seeking volunteers to support students with ABE (Adult Basic Education) in the classroom. The goal is to provide support to members in the IT or Administrative Skills training program and to raise their ABE scores by at least 1 grade level.
We are seeking volunteers who can commit to working with students at least 2 hours per week on Reading, Math Computations, and/or Applied Math up to an 11th grade level. We are seeking volunteers who can be here at least once per week between 10am-2pm and who feel comfortable tutoring this material and building relationships with adults.
