You might be a good candidate for teaching GED content with Community Impact! We are starting a new session that will run from the end of September to the beginning of December and are looking for teachers to work either in-person or hybrid, 75% of classes will be remote and 25% will be in-person. Candidates are expected to be able to commit to teaching 2 days a week, 6 hours of class and 2 hours of prep work per week with a co-instructor. Classes run during the day from 10:30am - 1:30pm and at night from 6pm - 8:30pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. This is a great way to get involved in the community and connect with adult students who are working on getting their GED! This position does require a time commitment of around 8 hours a week, but is also very rewarding. We are looking for passionate volunteers to join our team and serve a diverse group of adults students in our local area.

If you are interested, please send an email to with

  1. your resume,
  2. your availability during the fall and your preference to teach AM or PM classes,

After that, you should receive a response from the HSE Team at Community Impact at Columbia University. We look forward to working with you!

About Community Impact


2875 Broadway, New York, NY 10025, US

Mission Statement

Community Impact is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to serving disadvantaged people in the Morningside Heights, Harlem, and Washington Heights communities. Community Impact strives to advance the public good by fostering meaningful opportunities for students, staff, and faculty of Columbia University in order to provide high-quality programs and instill the importance of life-long service.


From its earliest inception as a single service initiative formed in 1981 by Columbia University undergraduates Joe DeGenova and David Joyce, Community Impact has grown into Columbia University’s largest student service organization and a primary interface between the University and the Morningside Heights and Harlem communities. As Community Impact integrated itself into the neighborhood’s social safety-net, students identified and responded to new community needs, expanding the number of services available to clients and working towards transforming the organization into an integrated service network with a strong education emphasis. We currently provide a multitude of services, including continuing adult education programs to help community members obtain high school equivalance. We offer ESL classes for immigrant families, and a workforce development program to help our community gain meaningful employment.
