English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Classroom Corps

Corps volunteers are a part of a network of volunteers who share a passion for enhancing English skills for adult learners. Volunteers serve as classroom support, and help students prepare for the TOEFL exams at 3 partner organizations focused on adult ESOL education. Corps volunteers deepen their community engagement by committing to serve twice-a-month through the Corps and attending skill building opportunities.

See a complete list of expectations and benefits of the Corps program, here.

We are looking for volunteers who are interested in:

1. Joining the ESOL (Classroom) Corps Program and meeting the Corps expectations, including serving 2 times/month at one of our Corps partner sites
2. Working in classrooms and community centers one-on-one with adult learners to build English Language Skills.
3. Working with a diverse population of volunteers and adult learners and comfortable with cultural differences.
