Start your year off on the right foot and give back to your community! Lyndale’s Education Program is in need of volunteer support for our English as a Second Language (ESL) and Digital Literacy (DL) classes.
Volunteers are needed for morning and evening ESL classes, and afternoon Digital Literacy classes. You could volunteer 1 day per week, or more. In this role you can expect to lead a small group of students and provide 1-on-1 student support. We are also seeking one additional morning and evening volunteer that will be in charge of weekly registration and testing of ESL students; for this role, some conversational Spanish is a necessity.
Our program will be starting to use a new curriculum called “English Unlocked”, created by Literacy Minnesota in January. LNA will be organizing trainings for volunteers in January including a curriculum overview and instructions on how to use it to extend learning and engagement with students. Please contact , LNA’s ESL Teacher & Volunteer Coordinator, to be notified of upcoming training dates and to discuss how you might like to be involved in this program. She will be happy to follow up with you separately to discuss your availability, skills, and interests and get you scheduled, and trained!, as a volunteer for 2023!
