Do you love to work with people? Are you interested in working with folks from many different walks of life? Are you passionate about education? You're in luck! Lyndale's Adult Education Program is the place for you!

The Lyndale Education program
serves adult students in the Lyndale and surrounding neighborhoods. The purpose of the program is to provide high-quality English language instruction and to help students become more connected to the community.

The Volunteer Teacher’s role is to lead small groups of adult ESL students according to a pre-set curriculum. Volunteer Teachers also vitally contribute to the creation of a respectful, engaging, and supportive learning environment for adult students who are motivated to improve their proficiency in English speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

The Classroom Assistant/1:1 Tutor's role is to support the Lead ESL Teacher in their class group, provide 1:1 or small group tutoring with students, or possibly fill in for Volunteer Teachers when they are out.

This volunteer opportunity is ideal for individuals who are passionate about accessible community education and are interested in expanding their capacity for communicating with and learning from community members of diverse cultural backgrounds. Our professional Lead ESL Teachers provide the curriculum and organize the classroom, while Volunteer Teachers gain valuable teaching and tutoring experience.
