QUICK OVERVIEW

As part of the Bridge to Home Shelter Corps team, Learning Center Volunteers work with clients residing in the BTH shelter as well as community guests to be academically successful. This position empowers individuals on their educational journey, assisting in the breakdown of potential barriers and encouraging successful completion of coursework.



IMPACT

Clients are often behind on education trends in adult schools. Returning to school after an extended absence can leave them feeling "defeated" before they even begin. Having someone knowledgeable in academic processes who can navigate the clients through them will increase their success rate of enrolling and completing coursework to improve their educational standing, giving them better opportunities as they enter the workforce or pursue better jobs and careers.

REQUIREMENTS

Must be over 18 years of age

Have two (2) character references dated within the past 12 months

Be able to commit to a minimum of two (2) hours per week

Have demonstrated knowledge in basic academic areas such as math, sciences, and English

Basic knowledge of school enrollment processes

Must pass a background check

VOLUNTEER ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES

Shelter Corps volunteers supplement shelter staff in the daily operations of the facility so that staff and clients have additional time to engage in educational resources, life-skills development, meals, and other developmental skills and activities that assist in providing the foundation for a safe shelter and moving from homelessness to housing.

As a learning Center Volunteer, you will be asked to assist with the following tasks:

Encourage client enrollment in adult school or college courses that they are interested in.

Assist clients in the creation and management of school and email accounts that contribute to the necessary processes for effective academic and professional communications.

Be able to enroll all interested individuals by the due dates and arrange payments for any courses with assistance from management.

Work one on one with clients who are enrolled in adult school or other educational resources to improve their educational standing.
