Current Volunteer Needs

November 18, 2015 at 6:42 AM | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments

We are pleased to announce the following new volunteer opportunities for instructors and non-instructors alike!

  • Classroom Tutoring

LCNV has recently launched a Classroom Tutoring Program! We are looking for tutors to provide the additional support and instruction to students enrolled in an LCNV class to help them succeed. At this time, we are offering this program to students attending classes at the James Lee Community Center. Details on needs for the remainder of the Fall 2015 semester are below.

Location: James Lee Community Center 2855 Annandale Road, Falls Church, VA 22042
Dates: November 24, 2015 – December 17, 2015
5:30pm – 6:30 pm – Tuesdays and Thursdays

If you have completed LCNV’s Instructor Training and are interested in being a part of this program between now and December, please sign up here. Contact Kate Chu with any questions.

This is an ongoing program targeting the classroom curriculum, and more opportunities will arise throughout the year. For an update on these activities next semester, look out for a posting on our website or email Tutoring@lcnv.org.

  • Student Retention Assistants
    Are you interested in communicating with LCNV students to help them stay on track to achieve their English language and literacy goals? Student Retention Assistants will call students who have missed a couple of classes to find out why they missed class and to encourage attendance at future sessions. Through these informal phone calls, we anticipate Student Retention Assistants will be able to provide encouragement students may need as well as deliver student feedback to LCNV’s program. To serve in this capacity, volunteers will need to have verbal fluency in one of LCNV’s major languages (Spanish, Arabic, Korean, Vietnamese) and the ability to come to the office for 2-3 hours per week throughout the course of a semester. For more information or to express your interest, contact Ashley King, Student Admissions Manager.
  • Translators
    LCNV would like to create student recruitment materials in our learners’ key languages. This would include translating LCNV flyers, class schedules, and other outreach materials into the Arabic, Korean, Spanish, and Vietnamese. The ability to write at near-native or advanced fluency in one of these languages is essential. For more information or to express your interest, contact Ruba Marshood Afzal, Associate Director of Community Engagement.

Lastly, LCNV has just a few Holiday Gift Wrapping shifts remaining! If you would like to support LCNV by wrapping customer purchases for donations at nearby Barnes & Noble locations, visit this website to find out more and to sign up!
