We have a variety of volunteer teaching opportunities. We teach English in our ESOL program and offer basic and secondary education classes in our Adult Education program. Teachers are needed for both programs. ESOL teachers make a six month commitment of 3 hours weekly, and Adult Edu teachers are needed for up to 4 hours weekly for classes that run from 5 to 9 weeks. We have a monthly need for basic mathematics.

Center for Adult Learning serves more than 500 adult students each year. Students gain valuable skills to enable them to join the workforce, begin college, and become lifelong learners.

No previous experience is necessary.

  • Volunteers work with small groups of learners (typically 4 - 8 students per group)
  • Volunteers do not need to speak languages other than English
  • ESOL volunteers are asked to make a six-month commitment (two hours, twice weekly)
