Description:

Hello! We are the Adult Learners Program at Jane Addams Resource Corporation (JARC). We are seeking volunteers who can help adult learners with basic computers, reading, writing, English, and/or math skills for 90 minutes once a week.

These adult learners are generally below the 9th grade level equivalent and come with a range of goals. You will tutor him/her at our main office in Ravenswood or at a local library convenient to you and the learner. 

Every learner and tutor who meets in-person at JARC is required to be COVID vaccinated or receive a weekly PCR COVID test. We also ask everyone to have their temperature checked, fill out a COVID screening and wear a mask every time that they come onsite. The computer lab is disinfected on a daily basis.

All JARC ALPS volunteers are provided with 12 hours of training before they begin with a learner and with curriculum to use with their learner. Perks of volunteering include opportunities for free professional development through Literacy Works, Chicago Citywide Literacy Coalition and other organizations.

This is a virtual/remote tutoring opportunity. To volunteer for our virtual/online tutoring, sign up for this opportunity
