Basic Philosophy

Volunteers are an essential part of our adult education services. Volunteers enhance the quality of our instructional program by donating their time and effort in the classroom. 

Our basic goal is to help adults acquire literacy and language skills and to promote lifelong learning. To accomplish these goals, we work closely with the student in establishing successful learning experiences, promoting positive self-image and self-confidence, and improving competency in literacy and language skills by setting and obtaining learning goals. 

Volunteers will work closely with an instructor by assisting in a variety of ways. Volunteers may serve as a teacher's aide, a tester or assessor, a registration aide, a computer lab assistant, or a special project assistant. Volunteer scheduling and placement is arranged according to each volunteer's availability.
