Co-Instructors and Class Assistants support adult students in our ESOL, Adult Basic Education, GED, citizenship, or computer classes. Co-Instructors develop lesson plans and work as a team to co-teach, which provides individualized support for students in classes and the opportunity for volunteers to collaborate and learn from each other. Class Assistants work with a lead teacher to provide extra support to students and the instructor during class.
Our classes focus on skill levels (beginning to advanced), skill areas (reading, writing, math, speaking/listening), or specific topics (citizenship, computers, workplace skills, math and science for the GED test). We work with a diverse population of adult learners who together speak over 40 languages (the top 5 being Amharic, Tigrinya, Spanish, Mandarin, and Somali). Literacy Source is an equal opportunity employer working towards a culturally diverse workplace. People of color and bilingual/multilingual individuals are encouraged to apply.
Literacy Source partners with adults working to gain skills and education to create new opportunities for themselves, their families, and the community. We envision an inclusive and equitable society providing education and opportunities for all adults. We believe that all adults can improve their basic skills and that community volunteers, trained and supported by professional staff, can work with students to make this happen. We welcome the challenge of developing the habit of independent lifelong learning. The Literacy Source story unfolds each day at our center - and in homes, community centers, and workplaces around Seattle and the Puget Sound region - as adult learners work towards literacy, English language skills, citizenship, better jobs, and better lives.
Literacy Source is a safe and community-centered environment where adults can improve basic reading, writing, math, English language, computer, employment, and life skills.
