Literacy Volunteers of America, Essex & Passaic Counties

  • 41 people are interested

When you help an adult, you help her or his entire family. At Literacy Volunteers of America, Essex & Passaic Counties, we have a long list of U.S. citizens and immigrants, among them refugees and asylum seekers, waiting for help in learning to speak, understand, read, and write in English. But we need volunteers to teach them. Here's how you can help: Learn to teach ESOL and Basic Literacy with LVA. After training, you will be matched with a small group of students (three to five students) and tutor them for at least two hours each week via distance learning.

Become a volunteer literacy tutor by registering for our 10-hour (five days of two hours each) virtual tutor training course and then teach students with distance learning so we can keep the tutoring going during COVID-19. LVA tutoring sessions will go back to in-person once the COVID-19 thread dissipates and therefore this opportunity is only for local residents of Essex and Passaic Counties or others than can meet in-person in these counties.

This is a great opportunity to get involved and help your community!
