|Description:||INSTRUCTIONS: references and educational background information is required. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.|
"Not being able to read is like being in prison, because if you can't read, you're not free." –Literacy Program Student.
Think of all the things you couldn't do if you didn't possess the gift of literacy: read the warning labels on medicine bottles, interpret traffic signs, fill out a job application, follow a recipe, or read to a child.
The LifeWorks Literacy Programs seek tutors to work with our English as a Second Language (ESL) students.
|Duties:||Classes meet M/W or T/TH, and tutors may teach both weekly sessions or opt to "co-tutor" and teach one day per week. Sessions meet at the LifeWorks East Community Center located at 835 Pleasant Valley Rd We offer morning (10am-noon), afternoon (12:30pm-2:30pm), and evening (6:30pm-8:30pm) sessions. Tutors are asked to make a 6 month minimum commitment.|
|Qualifications:||We welcome all volunteers aged 18 and up. The only required skills are motivation, energy, and patience. Because all tutors are provided with an orientation and 12 hours of pre-service training, no prior experience is required. Knowledge of a language other than English is not necessary. For upcoming orientation and training dates, please contact Natasha Brockington at 512-735-2155 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. |
2014 Orientation Dates: 1/13, 3/3, 5/5, 7/14, 9/8, and 11/3 at 6:00pm. Can also schedule individually.
