If you have teaching or tutoring experience and are available 10hrs/week for one semester, please consider applying for a group tutoring program Session Leader position! These internships can help you:
- sharpen instructive, managerial, and communication skills
- get better acquainted with issues affecting adults with low literacy
- become better prepared for careers that have educational or international reach
- become a better teacher, healthcare provider, business executive, or community leader
Duties include creating lesson plans for up to 8 student/volunteer tutor pairs every week, tracking attendance, attending your weekly group tutoring session, and providing support as needed to the pairs in your session. Lesson planning time is flexible; as long as it is done here at Literacy Network (701 Dane St) during regular office hours (we are open until 8:00 pm Mon-Thu). Successful interns receive $600 per semester.
Students are Madison-area adults (many who are immigrants and refugees) who struggle with rudimentary reading, writing, spoken English, or really basic computer skills (sending an email, making words bold or italic, etc). When they improve those skills, they can find jobs, better support their families, stay healthy, and be more involved in their children’s education. The adults in our programs come from over 70 different countries and speak over a hundred languages – but all instruction is in English, so additional language skills are not required.
This is a great way to learn new skills and have fun while having a meaningful impact in the lives of others. Interns can be college students, retirees, or professionals looking for a new experience—anyone looking for a great way to gain valuable professional skills while helping others in the community!
