Are you...

Looking for teaching experience?

Interested in supporting adult students in the classroom?

Excited about math and science?

You might be a good candidate for teaching GED content with Community Impact! We are currently running an 8-week session from now until the end of August. We are looking for someone who can jump right in! Candidates are expected to be able to commit to teaching 2 days a week, 6 hours of class and on average 2 hours of prep work per week. Classes run during the day from 10:30am - 1:30pm and in the evenings from 6pm - 8:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We are currently looking for an AM hybrid teacher (Tuesdays are in-person, Thursdays remote) and a PM in-person teacher. 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 offer both in-person and hybrid courses. 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 Monica Haines at hse@communityimpact.columbia.edu with

  1. your resume,
  2. your availability during the summer and your preference to teach AM or PM classes,
  3. and a few dates and times you are available for a Zoom meeting.

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

*All classes are near Columbia University's Morningside campus. Volunteers are expected to come in-person and be fully vaccinated.*

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.
