Do you have a passion for helping others improve their computer skills?

Technology Instructors specialize in helping adult students develop their digital literacy skills in a small class setting. By spending just 1.5 hours per week with our adult students, you could help them become familiar with intermediate computer skills, from utilizing basic functions in Microsoft Word to navigating the internet!

Volunteers can plan lessons using Google Applied Digital Skills curriculum or instructors can create course content tailored to student needs. No prior teaching experience is necessary. Training and self-paced software is provided to aid in instruction, and instructors are provided with continual support and resources by the PBALC staff.

Please note- all volunteer instructors must be 18 or older. Volunteers will be required to fill out a volunteer application, pay a $35.00 criminal background check fee, and complete a volunteer orientation.

Mission Statement

Permian Basin Adult Literacy Center develops the literacy skills of adults so they can achieve their goals, improve their lives, and impact our community.

Description

Permian Basin Adult Literacy Center, Inc. (PBALC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

The PBALC Adult Literacy Program is helping adults improve their own skills so that they may also have a positive and lifelong impact on the educational achievements of future generations. To address these needs, we provide three primary services, including: English Language Learning (ELL); Adult Education and Literacy (AEL - reading, writing, math, computers); and Digital Literacy (DL). We assign literacy skill levels through program enrollment, goal setting, and testing, which enables us to provide materials and tutoring specific to each student. The PBALC staff maintains continuous contact with all students and provides support through progress checks, resources, and encouragement.
