Do you identify as a life-long learner?

Do you want to know more about how learning occurs and how to guide others through the process?

Consider becoming part of an organization that values Equity and Social Justice, Creativity and Imagination, Collaborative Relationships, Joy, and Transformational Learning.

Adult Basic Literacy is looking for volunteers for our GED prep program. Volunteers engage with our learners online in class and/or 1:1. You’ll create collaborative relationships with learners, other volunteers, and staff (plus learn some things about yourself along the way!).

Open minds, curious spirits, and flexible thinkers are welcome to apply, regardless of teaching experience. Volunteers should commit for a minimum of one year and are expected to complete the Foundations training process and participate in 8 hours of Continuing Education each subsequent year.

Interested? Intrigued? Smitten? Sign up for one of our online Info Sessions to learn more about the program and Literacy Connects. We hope to see you soon!
