Did you know that 1 in 6 adults in Washington State lack the English literacy skills needed to get a livable wage job? Literacy Source makes it possible for adults to gain the basic literacy skills they need to succeed in school, to find a job, to achieve life goals, and to create a better, more hopeful future.
Tutors help our students gain self-sufficiency and greater confidence in their English listening/speaking, reading and writing, and digital literacy skills.
Our volunteer ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) tutors offer individualized support to adults who want to improve their basic reading and writing skills, math skills, or those who want to improve their English by developing lesson plans that focus on each individual students' needs and own goals from beginner to intermediate level.
We work with a diverse group of both native and non-native English speakers at our learning center in Lake City.
Bilingualism (especially in Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin, Somali, Tigrinya, or Oromo) and/or experience working with adult immigrants and/or refugees is a plus.
Training and support will be provided.
We are an equal opportunity employer working towards a culturally diverse workplace. People of color 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.
