Apply to Volunteer at The Literacy Project
If you are excited about our mission of providing access to education to all adults in the Pioneer Valley, join us as a volunteer.
What volunteers do:
Most volunteers assist in our classes, working under the direction of the staff instructor, and come in once a week for a few hours. Since you'll be working alongside our teachers, you don't need to have prior teaching experience - just a willingness to learn!
Some volunteers help in the office, maintain our classrooms, or assist with fundraising and outreach events.
Others bring their professional skills and expertise - computer networking, graphic design, photography, legal issues, curriculum development, executive coaching, etc. - to their volunteer position, making a unique contribution to the work of The Literacy Project.
We are looking for volunteer tutors who:
support our mission
are 18 or older
have a high school diploma or the equivalent
are conversationally fluent in English
can commit to 6 months or 2 school semesters
are willing to learn alongside the teacher and students
Look at our Frequently Asked Questions page.
