Calling All Volunteers to Support Lyndale’s Adult Education Program!

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, afternoon, and evening classes and 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 students; for this role, some conversational Spanish is a necessity. 

We have a Volunteer Training regarding our new curriculum created by Literacy Minnesota that we will start using in January called “English Unlocked”. If you would like to get an overview of the curriculum and instructions on how to use it to extend learning and engagement with students, please contact Trainings are happening on Wednesday evening from 6-8 PM and on Thursday morning from 10-noon, December 14 and 15. If these dates do not work for you, we will be organizing additional trainings in January. Simply contact Emma, LNA’s ESL Teacher & Volunteer Coordinator, and she will be happy to follow up with you to discuss your availability, skills, and interests and get you scheduled and trained as a volunteer for 2023!
