Volunteer ESOL tutors offer individualized support to adult learners at our center in Lake City. They develop lesson plans focused on individual students' needs at all skill levels, supporting students' self-sufficiency and working with them towards greater independence. Instruction can focus on any of the following skill areas: literacy (reading and writing), conversation skills (speaking and listening), and computer literacy.

Experience working with adult immigrants and/or refugees is a plus, although not required. The top 5 first languages represented among our students are Amharic, Tigrinya, Spanish, Mandarin, and Somali, although combined our students speak over 40 languages. We are an equal opportunity employer working towards a culturally diverse workplace. People of color and bilingual/multilingual individuals are encouraged to apply.

About Literacy Source

Location:

3200 NE 125th ST, Seattle, WA 98125, US

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
