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.
