About

About The Volunteer Role:
MRNY is seeking a volunteer with teaching experience to teach a citizenship class to ESL students looking to pass their naturalization exams to become US citizens. MRNY offers a collaborative environment for volunteers who take part of this opportunity.

The volunteer will:

  • Look closely at the materials and lesson templates provided by our staff to adapt the lesson plans/materials to fit a 2 hr class.
  • Send the MRNY staff materials for printing or bring printed material (we have a printer in the office available for your use).
  • Teach the civics class on Mondays to multi-level English learners seeking to take a naturalization interview.
  • Communicate during the evening with the volunteers recruited to do mock exams to ensure that students are given adequate practice
  • Maintain effective communication with the team regarding anything that seems unclear, questions s/he may have, the status of the class and the students, and other things related to the class. We also ask that volunteers respond in a timely manner to emails from staff about the class.
Training and support that MRNY can provide:
  • Orientation about MRNY materials for citizenship class
  • General Orientation (about MRNY, the volunteer role, the students, community, collaborative approaches, etc...)
  • A couple of class observation in our Queens location (the volunteer observes the citizenship classes taught by MRNY staff in our Queens location)
  • Phone meetings (scheduled with the volunteer)
  • A room for teaching
  • Student enrollment and pre-testing
  • Printer, laptop, projector and speakers are available for use
Our Volunteer Community:
It is important to us that participants have a strong desire to support and work with the immigrant community. Great teamwork, effective communication skills, a positive attitude, and an interest in adult education as it relates to student speakers of other languages, or the desire to learn about these is required from all our volunteers.
