Do you know that 1 in 6 adults in Washington State lack the basic literacy skills needed to get a livable wage job?
Help make a difference by volunteering with a diverse population of low-income adult learners (our students speak over 40 languages. Top 5: Amharic, Tigrinya, Spanish, Mandarin, and Somali), working to improve their lives and become more self-sufficient.
As a class assistant you will support an instructor in either an ESOL, Reading & Writing, Citizenship, Conversation or Computer class. Classes focus on skill levels, beginning to advanced, in reading, writing, speaking/listening, or specific topics. (work-skills, citizenship, GED prep). Our classes are small and student-focused serving immigrants/refugees and native English speakers.
Opportunities available online or in-person (COVID precautions in place) at our Lake City, Seattle center. Training and support provided.
We are an equal opportunity employer working towards a culturally diverse workplace.
BIPOC, bilingual/multilingual individuals are encouraged to apply.

About Literacy Source
3200 NE 125th ST, Seattle, WA 98125, US
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. Our students range in age from 19 to 86, and speak 41 languages. 97% of our students are low-income and 96% are immigrants or refugees.
Literacy Source is a safe and community-centered environment, working to become a fully inclusive, multicultural, anti-racist organization. Commitment from our volunteers to this work is essential and we strongly encourage applications from people of color, immigrants, refugees, women, people with disabilities, members of the LBGTQ community and other underrepresented and historically marginalized groups.
