ESOL Teacher Assistant (~ 6 hours per week)

A Faith That Does Justice is an interfaith organization that challenges people to experience God by living their faith intentionally in service to others. We do this by showing how unjust societal structures marginalize people and by acting to help those in need. Our vision is people intentionally living their faith in action.

Why teach English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)?

Use teaching to serve social justice and build your own teaching skills. Help adult learners in vulnerable populations develop the language skills needed to obtain employment and to live successfully in this country. Through its interfaith mission to foster meaningful relationships and build solidarity among Boston residents, the ESOL program of A Faith That Does Justice creates an expanded community network for Teacher Assistants as well as students. 

Course Description

  • 15 weeks long, two days of 2-hour sessions per week 
  • Approximately 10 students grouped by proficiency levels (Beginner & Intermediate) 
  • Classes are virtual using Zoom
  • Students are adults
  • Teacher Assistants are supported by ESOL Teachers and Student Relationship Managers (mentors)

Teacher Assistant Commitment and Expectations

  • Assist the Teacher during 1-3 class sessions over a 12-month period 
  • Work with students 1 on 1 during class 
  • Be present and prepared for all sessions
  • Tutor students as needed outside of class sessions
  • Be able to effectively lead a Zoom break out session to use Zoom controls such as chat, screen sharing, etc.
  • (Training may be available to refresh or teach some technical skills.)

Is this right for me?

Teacher Assistants do not need to be bilingual as classes are taught in English. While prior teaching assisting experience is preferred, it is not required. We seek Teaching Assistants who are patient, engaging and dedicated to the mission of empowerment through education. AFTDJ is an interfaith program; members of all faiths and beliefs are welcome as both students and teachers. 

Full Time Teacher Assistant vs. Substitute Teacher Assistant?

A Full Time Teacher Assistant would be expected to participate in class sessions twice a week for a 15week period. A Substitute Teacher Assistant would be expected to be able to step in for Full Time Teacher Assistant on short notice in cases where the Full Time Teacher Assistant is not able to make a class.

Mission Statement

A Faith That Does Justice is an interfaith organization that challenges people to experience God by living their faith intentionally in service to others. We do this by showing how unjust societal structures marginalize people and by acting to help those in need. Our vision is people intentionally living their faith in action.

Description

Inspiring faith in action.

What We Do:

A Faith That Does Justice has four components:

  • Faith in Action, an initiative that emphasizes the works of mercy. We offer English as a Second Language to enable those in need of better language skills to function in the work place and society.
  • Community Meetings focus on social issues that affect the most vulnerable among us. These have included presentations on immigration, housing and homelessness, and racism.
  • Monthly Workshops that bring English speaking and non-English speaking people together to realize that committed faith ought to be lived in action on behalf of justice for all.
  • Communications, email and social media posting on social justice and faith topics to educate our readers and to remind and inform readers about important social justice issues such as racism and immigration.


Who We Are:
We are a volunteer-run program, helping people from different faith traditions walk in solidarity with those less fortunate. Volunteering with A Faith that Does Justice allows you to put your faith into action and make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate.

Who We Seek:
As a fully volunteer organization, we rely on the talents, skills and dedication of volunteers to carry out our mission. We ask that volunteers commit at least 3 hours per week supporting our endeavors.
