Help Make a Difference

Our volunteers help us build better futures by empowering adults with literacy, life, and work skills.

Volunteering at Literacy Action

Literacy Action relies upon the commitment of volunteers to help us meet our mission of empowering undereducated adults to reach their highest potential. Volunteer roles are both administrative and instructional. Volunteers at Literacy Action provide that extra support to push the organization and the students forward.

Volunteer trainings are held on an as-needed basis. Each training session is 2-3 hours and includes a general education about Literacy Action, plus specific training on each program: Adult Basic Education, English & Civics or Digital Literacy.

Lead Teachers

Volunteers with some teaching experience may serve as the primary instructor in an ESL, Reading & Writing, Math or Conversation class.

Lab Volunteers

Lab volunteers will facilitate these lab times by helping students log into the computers, navigate the software, and answer questions about the lessons.

On-Call Substitutes

Volunteers who cannot commit to an entire semester or that may have varying availability throughout the week are encouraged to serve as substitutes.

Digital Literacy Volunteers

Digital Literacy Volunteer Teachers deliver classroom instruction to enhance an adult student’s computer literacy knowledge and skills.

Classroom Assistants

Partner with an instructor to provide more individual attention and classroom learning to enrolled students.

Corporate Volunteering

We offer several custom volunteer experiences for corporations as well as options to assist on a regular basis, including Welcoming Day volunteers, Career Ready trainers and workshop leaders.
