Volunteer Opportunity:

Chinatown Literacy Project: Part-time teachers for high-English-proficiency and low-English-proficiency English Classes.

Background: Chinatown Literacy Project is a youth-run program that provides weekly English classes for adult Chinese-speaking-English-language-learners. CLP is unique amongst literacy programs in that participants not only benefit from free class time but also an hour of immersive conversation practice with high school volunteers. Becoming a teacher at CLP is a great opportunity to improve the lives of those who may not traditionally have access to paid English-language-acquisition classes.

Job Responsibilities:
• Teach Sunday morning sessions (from 9AM to 11AM) from January through April. Classes are not held during public or school holidays.
• Prepare weekly ESL curriculum/lesson-plans for fifteen to twenty-five English learners.
• Work with high-school-age Program Coordinators and the Program Advisor to develop curriculum and build programs.
• Participate in weekly debriefing sessions to discuss progress of ESL students and to address the questions and concerns of the student volunteers.
• Work with Program Coordinators to find a substitute to be at hand should you ever be unable to teach.

• Required: College degree and interest in teaching English.
• Recommended: Some level of Chinese-language proficiency. This proficiency is most important for teachers in low-English-proficiency classes, as learners may be completely unable to comprehend/speak English

• Being a small student-run program, volunteer and teaching work is unpaid.

Contact: If you are interested in either of these positions, please send a resume or cover letter to

Thank you for your interest!
