Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of the literacy program is to provide educational opportunities for adults 18 years or older who have not completed high school or who would like assistance with basic education skills. This includes competence in reading, writing, speaking, problem-solving, or mathematics at a level necessary to function in society, on a job, or in the family. Sixteen- and 17-year-olds who are out of school may enter only under special regulations. High school graduates who would like to enroll in refresher courses are welcome.
Volunteer tutors work with adults who are learning the English language skills necessary for living and working in our community. Tutors work one-on-one with individuals who either desire to acquire English language skills or to prepare for taking the GED. Most students are limited-English speakers. Tutors will use published curriculum materials or create appropriate materials to meet the student’s listening, speaking, reading, and writing needs.
Other Volunteer assignments are aiding in student assessments for Civics/US History courses and technology learning. Help with evening childcare is also needed for our evening courses that generally run from 3:45pm-8:00pm.
