ORGANIZATION: Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania

Goodwill of Southwestern PA is looking for individuals who enjoy helping others to make an impact in the adult learning community by assisting instructors in the ONLINE classroom. Hi there! We have some students in our high school equivalency diploma (GED) program who need help to pass their social studies and/or science exams. It could be a minimum of 3 hours (2 sessions of 1.5 hours) or up to 4 hours each week. To help one of these students, you'd first meet with me briefly on Zoom to go over things, fill out a volunteer application, complete a free and quick PA criminal background check, and then we'd help you to learn about what students need to know for this exam. It's mainly reading comprehension skills such as: reading and understanding tables and bar graphs, making inferences, sequence of events, analysis of information sources, interpreting political cartoons and propaganda, etc. Once you're prepped, you could meet with the student on Zoom. Support is always available from me, the Volunteer Coordinator, and from our adult education instructors. Those interested can contact Ashley Reilly, Education Volunteer Coordinator, by text at 412-498-0412 or by email at ashley.reilly@goodwillswpa.org
