Volunteer opportunity at the Cooper Memorial Library in Clermont!
LCLS Adult Literacy Program – Program Assistant, South Lake, Cooper Memorial Library
The Adult Literacy Program is designed to provide adults, who are interested in improving their English language skills, an opportunity to work with a volunteer tutor to achieve their literacy goals – specifically, improved conversation, reading, and writing skills. Most adult learners are interested in developing their English skills to maintain a current job or transition to a better job; improving their ability to communicate with medical professionals or their child’s school; or prepare for the GED or other certification classes. How is this achieved? There are a variety of opportunities for Volunteer Tutors - tutoring, computer lab assistant, mini-course facilitator, program assistant, learner orientation and more!
You must be at least 18 years old; agree to background screening policy; be dependable and prompt; be able to relate well to a variety of people; be willing to maintain the confidentiality of the learners; have good listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills; have basic computer skills; and be flexible and patient. As the Program Assistant you will support the literacy coordinator or literacy contact by managing data entry; completing office duties as requested to include, for example, copying and labeling; contacting volunteer tutors, adult learners, and/or literacy staff; managing room reservations; and other administrative duties. In any volunteer role, you will relay concerns, issues, questions, and comments as appropriate (so resolutions, information, or answers can be provided) to the literacy contact and/or the literacy coordinator.
