ORGANIZATION: Literacy Source

  • 37 people are interested

Did you know that more than 48 million adults in the United States can only read and write at a 3rd grade level?

Literacy Source makes it possible for adults to gain the literacy skills they need to succeed in school, to find a job, to achieve life goals, and to create a better, more hopeful future.

Our volunteer tutors offer individualized support to neurodiverse adults and/or adults with learning disabilities who want to improve their foundational reading, writing, and math skills, or to those want to get their GED. Tutoring pairs can also focus on computer skills (such as using email).

Tutors will develop lesson plans focused on individual students' needs and own goals from beginner to intermediate level. We work with a diverse group of both native and non-native English speakers at our learning center in Lake City.

Bilingualism and/or experience working with neurodiverse adults, immigrants, or refugees is a plus.

Training and support will be provided.

Literacy Source is an equal opportunity employer working towards a culturally diverse workplace. We strongly encourage applications from the BIPOC community, immigrants, refugees, women, people with disabilities, members of the LBGTQ community and other underrepresented and historically marginalized groups.

About Literacy Source

Location:

3200 NE 125th ST, Seattle, WA 98125, US

Mission Statement

Literacy Source partners with adults working to gain skills and education to create new opportunities for themselves, their families, and the community. We envision an inclusive and equitable society providing education and opportunities for all adults. We believe that all adults can improve their basic skills and that community volunteers, trained and supported by professional staff, can work with students to make this happen. We welcome the challenge of developing the habit of independent lifelong learning. The Literacy Source story unfolds each day at our center - and in homes, community centers, and workplaces around Seattle and the Puget Sound region - as adult learners work towards literacy, English language skills, citizenship, better jobs, and better lives. Our students range in age from 19 to 86, and speak 41 languages. 97% of our students are low-income and 96% are immigrants or refugees.

Description

Literacy Source is a safe and community-centered environment, working to become a fully inclusive, multicultural, anti-racist organization. Commitment from our volunteers to this work is essential and we strongly encourage applications from people of color, immigrants, refugees, women, people with disabilities, members of the LBGTQ community and other underrepresented and historically marginalized groups.
