The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Co-Instructors and Classroom 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.
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.
