Volunteers allow us to provide individual attention and encouragement to students. Volunteers make a big difference in student success. Their patience, guidance and encouragement help adults reach their goals. Two hours per week can help someone with reading, writing, math, or learning to speak English.
The Volunteer Coordinator for the Adult Basic Education program arranges for classroom volunteers to work in a classroom setting in small groups or with students who need one-on-one help. The Coordinator is responsible for the recruitment, orientation and placement of volunteers based on needs in the program.
The Volunteer Coordinator is available to handle any questions, suggestions, concerns or requests that volunteers bring forward.
Requirements for becoming a classroom volunteer: Must be at least 18 years of age, high school diploma and a desire to help adults succeed!
