If you are passionate about being a changemaker in the lives of the differently abled, you will find volunteering as a Class Teacher/Co-Teacher as the most gratifying experience!

Inclusive World is looking for adult class teachers for the program dates Sept 2022 - May 2023. We are a systems and process driven organization. Our class teachers are core to the foundation of our work and are well supported by our community of volunteers and parents of members to enable an effective learning experience.

  • Do classes either in-person (Milpitas, CA) or remote.
  • Undertake beginning of the year assessment of student needs, mid-year and end of the year evaluation of student progress in class
  • Require the flexibility of committing up to 3-5 hours a week

Inclusive World uses person centered practices and tools to engage with all its members. We offer training/shadow opportunities for new class teachers, from now through May 2022, to help you get conversant with our approaches and methodologies.
