Guadalupe School is a nonprofit organization committed to transforming lives through education.
We are a community of students,
staff and volunteers who believe that education is the greatest tool to end the cycle of poverty.
Guadalupe School consists of five unique
learning programs housed in one building, focusing on parent involvement, college preparation, and healthy families. To all who enroll in our programs, we provide a sense of connection, a welcoming place to learn, and a chance to pursue better opportunities.
Want to lend a hand where it really counts? Our Adult Education tutoring program needs volunteers!
Adult Education utilizes volunteer tutors to teach English as a Second Language to low-income, immigrant adults. Instruction takes place in small groups (2-4 people per group). Lessons are mainly competency-based, with a focus on life-skills rather than grammar rules.
The volunteer will be assigned a regular group, with whom s/he will meet one evening each week, from 7-9 PM. Students come to school two evenings per week, which means that each tutor has a counterpart, who meets with the group on the opposite night.
Upon arriving at the school, the tutor finds a lesson plan and all necessary materials prepared. The volunteer and his/her students work through the lesson plan; the professional staff is present to assist in any way needed.
Tutors do not need:

I have not only improved my
teaching skills, but I have grown as a human being and made good friends."

"I give what little I can because I
believe in the principles Guadalupe
was founded on. When it comes
to the newest members of our
community what better way to
welcome them than by opening the door to education."

"When I started coming to
Guadalupe School I was really shy,
but every tutor that taught me English lessons gave me the confidence to
keep learning and speaking English."
