Volunteer Opportunities

Trident Literacy offers you multiple ways as a volunteer to make a difference in someone’s life.

Teaching adults is not about immediate gratification. It requires a commitment to the students. Although it isn’t a short-term volunteer effort, it is a truly satisfying and rewarding opportunity to help someone change their life permanently for the better.

Many of our volunteers keep lifelong friendships with the students they teach!

Adult Basic Education (ABE) Volunteer Tutor
Teach reading, writing, math, computer skills, or Pre-GED (Social Studies, Science) to small groups or an individual.

Tutors work with individual and small groups of students who read at less than a 9th grade level. These students work independently and tutors assist as needed.

Students at the secondary level work mostly independently. Tutors work with individual students or small groups on concepts as needed.

English as a Second Language (ESL) Volunteer Tutor
Teach English to non-native speakers in small groups.

English as a Second Language tutors do not need to speak another language. You do need to be able to explain concepts clearly, and to help students learn our culture.

Computer Lab Volunteer
Assist students working on instructional software in the computer lab.

Special Projects Volunteer
Help with mailings, fundraisers, or clerical type work.

Trident Literacy needs volunteers in other areas, too. Volunteers may help with office/administrative tasks, child care, special projects and events.
