The Cultural Development & Wellness Center Adult Education Volunteer program is seeking classroom assistants and tutors for our English as a Second Language (ESL), Adult Basic & Secondary Education, and Citizenship Classes. Our program helps adult students – particularly immigrants, refugees, and their families – to learn English, pass the General Education Development (GED) test, apply for citizenship, and more. If you’re interested in helping people gain the skills they need to succeed in the United States, we encourage you to apply!
