Save to Favorites

The Learning Centers @ Brooklyn Public Library

  • 65 people are interested

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all BPL Adult Learning groups are meeting virtually via Zoom.

In an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have transitioned all of our in-person programming to an online format. Do you want to help an adult who struggles to read or brush on their reading, writing and math skills virtually using an online platform? Change a life, become an English Language Arts and Math volunteer tutor!

The New Lots Learning Center at Brooklyn Public Library needs volunteer tutors to work with Adults at the beginner, intermediate and advanced Adult Basic Education level. Tutors are needed as soon as possible. Prior experience is not necessary.

Volunteers are asked to lead two - 2 hours sessions each week. Summer sessions are from 6pm to 8pm on Tuesday and Thursdays, and from 10am to 12pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. Group sizes range from 1 to 6 adult students. Groups meet via Zoom and some levels use Google Classroom to facilitate their groups,

Volunteers will be given a virtual orientation and training by Training Manager and by Adult Learning Center Staff. Materials and support will be provided. Technology training will also be provided, if needed.

For additional information and to register for our upcoming Volunteer Information Session, please visit www.bklynlibrary.org/adult-learning.

Thank you and be well.
