Adult Basic Education (ABE) Instructor
Do you want to build your teaching skills in a professional environment? Adult Basic Education (ABE) instructors help adults learn basic reading and writing skills. Classes are typically small and instruction is usually one-on-one. Generally, our clients enroll in ABE classes as a precursor to High School Equivalency (HSE) prep. HSE instructors help adults who do not have a high school diploma and who are seeking to pass a high school equivalency exam (e.g. the GED). HSE instructors also work with their students one-on-one.
Our term of service lasts for 8 months as a full-time position. You will receive free health benefits and many professional development sessions. The trainings we offer will help you develop teaching skills and other important skills - such as networking and resume writing. Finally, once you complete your term of service you will receive an education award of $4,441. The education award can be used to pay off student loans or to pay for future schooling.
This position runs from November 23rd 2021 to July 15th, 2022 as a full-time commitment. Participants are given a living stipend during their term of service and an education award upon completion.
