WHO WE ARE:
Lantern Community Services is an organization that champions the independence and well-being of New Yorkers who were formerly homeless or have recently aged out of foster care through supportive housing. Our programs - which have proven results in health, employment, education and life skills - are delivered inside our residences and tailored to each person’s needs.

We are looking for a tutor with NEDP experience and knowledge to help residents qualify and pass the NEDP test. The National External Diploma Program (NEDP) is an applied performance assessment system that assesses the high school level skills of adults and out-of-school youth. Many of our residents have started to prepare on their own but need help to complete this demanding goal. We would appreciate finding a volunteer who can proactively create lessons for clients as they work through their course materials.

If you are interested in this position please feel free to contact us at volunteer@lanterncommunity.org. Thanks so much!

About Lantern Community Services

Location:

494 8th avenue, 20th floor, New York, NY 10001, US

Mission Statement

Lantern Community Services champions the independence and well-being of New Yorkers who have been impacted by or threatened with homelessness, as well as those who have aged out of foster care.

Description

Lantern is home to more than 1,400 formerly homeless people who live in our 15 apartment buildings across New York City. We pioneered services for people living with HIV, and we are one of the largest providers for young adults who have aged out of foster care. We give people more than just basic support and a place to live, prioritizing interventions with scientifically proven results. We’ve grown our programs a lot recently, working creatively with our existing resources, but now we need volunteer power to bring more programs to more of our clients!
