Help Students reach their goals
Do you know the value of someone helping you with a real challenge?
Adult students in this class are two years away from performing high school level work, but are set on getting there! They have the determination and will and just need your help in mastering the basics of language arts. Metro North ABE is looking for volunteers who could help students who are struggling in grammar, writing and pronunciation.
Working in a classroom led by a licenced teacher, volunteers will work in small groups and one on one to help students turn their goals into reality.
It is impossible to assign a value to helping someone reach their goal, this is your chance to profit. When you tutor at Metro North, the returns last forever.

Metro North will inspire and challenge all learners to reach their full potential. In a safe and supportive environment, we will teach the skills needed to succeed as responsible citizens in our changing world.
Metro North Adult Basic Education is a well established program, known as a collaborative partner sharing resources and working to find new and innovative ways to meet the needs of our learners. We have been serving a diverse population of adult learners in the north metro communities of the Twin Cities, (Minneapolis and St Paul) for more than 30 years. Metro North ABE is one of the largest consortiums in the state and recognized as a leader in best practices in adult basic education.
We are comprised of 8 school districts, providing free classes to adults for learning English, basics in reading, writing and math skills, citizenship, preparation for college placement, GED preparation, diploma, basic computer skills, transitions to post-secondary, and work place readiness. Last year we provided services to over 2000 learners. About half are learning English in our ESL program, and the other half are in basic skills development, GED, and other classes.
Metro North's diversity is not only in its adult learners, its sites are unique in offering urban, suburban, rural and small town settings. Covering the northern part of the Twin Cities, the consortium includes these school districts: Anoka-Hennepin, Brooklyn Center, Centennial, Columbia Heights, Elk River, Fridley, Spring Lake Park and St. Francis.
