Frequently Asked Questions

What are the requirements to volunteer to become a Learning Coach at Trident Literacy Association? 

We need you to be at least 24 years old and have a high school diploma or equivalency. 

I have never taught anything before, can I still help? 

While teaching experience is preferred, 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 am not interested in volunteering as a Learning Coach. Do you need help with anything else? 

We have lots of other volunteer opportunities. Please complete the volunteer form, and our volunteer coordinator will be in touch.
