For many new immigrants, learning English is a first step to full participation in American society. Help them take that first step by becoming a volunteer teacher in English or Citizenship classes. English classes help students improve their communication skills. Citizenship classes help students prepare for the U.S. citizenship test. Volunteers work in teams to plan lessons and teach the class. This fun and rewarding experience gives you a chance to make a difference in the lives of others. Individuals with an interest in education careers are encouraged to apply.
