You don’t need any prior teaching experience, only the desire to learn and help others learn.
Volunteers are the heart and soul of the English Language Acquisition for Adults (ELAA) program. Using an interactive team approach, ELAA volunteers teach classes for immigrant and refugee adults online and at libraries and community centers throughout Tucson. ELAA volunteers come from many different background and are lifelong learners who enjoy meeting new people and learning about different cultures.
