Our program uses a curriculum called Burlington English, which is a digital learning platform that allows the students additional time to practice English from their home computers. One need we have of volunteers is to provide additional support to the students in small group sessions using Burlington during their class time.
We do provide all training to volunteers on how to work with immigrant and refugee students, assisting in an ESL classroom, and on how to use Burlington. Likewise, each class instructor will prepare the lessons and materials for the day. Our biggest expectation of our volunteers is flexibility as the ways in which they assist may vary based on the needs of the class/students/teachers.
Currently, we need instructors who are available during the following class times:
Monday-Thursday 9-11 am
Monday-Thursday 12:30-2:30 pm
Monday-Wednesday 6:00-8:00 pm
Instructors are welcome to volunteer for as few or as many classtimes as they wish. We ask that all volunteers be available for at least one (2 hour) class time per week for a minimum of 10 weeks. We also require all volunteers to submit a background check as well as attend orientation/training.
