What are the requirements to become a teacher or tutor at Trident Literacy Association?
We need you to be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma or equivalency.
I have never taught anything before, can I still help?
Absolutely! We have an orientation and a curriculum that will keep you on track to help our students.
I want to volunteer with the ESL program, but I only speak English. Can you use me?
We teach English! Our students speak hundreds of languages. We could never have a staff that spoke all of them. All of our courses are taught in English, and our students become conversational much faster.
I can’t teach. Do you need help with anything else?
Everyone can teach! But we understand if it is not your cup of tea. We have lots of other volunteer opportunities.
Hours vary at our different locations.
We are only open in the evenings at our Rivers Avenue location.
Our most urgent need is for GED tutors.
