Job Description for Volunteer Teachers

To help adults learn to read, write and/or speak English in a small class setting.

ALP conducts several Teacher Training workshops throughout the year. The workshops include three 3-hour sessions and volunteers need to attend every session to become certified. ALP offers in-services on topics of interest to teachers several times a year.

Teaching occurs in classrooms located at the ALP Rudakof site or online. 

Classes meet two times a week for 90 minutes each session. ALP offers classes on a quarterly basis, each quarter is approximately 10 weeks.

A two-class commitment is required of volunteer teachers. You may fulfill this commitment by teaching two classes in one quarter or one class in two separate quarters over the course of a year. This is a significant amount of your time, and we ask that you consider it carefully before volunteering. 

Volunteer teachers must know how to read, write and speak the English language, and be genuinely interested in helping other adults improve his/her literacy skills.

ALP uses many materials to provide a structured method for teaching adults basic reading, writing and/or speaking skills. Teachers have access to additional resources at ALP. 

Your efforts will open doors of opportunity for adults and you will make lasting differences in the lives of others.
