(Delaware and Chester Counties, PA)— Are you interested in obtaining personal satisfaction and fulfillment by helping adult learners work toward accomplishing their academic goals? Then become a volunteer tutor! Delaware County Community College’s grant-funded Adult Basic Education and GED program is seeking volunteer tutors and classroom assistants to help prepare adult learners for the GED test.

Volunteering requires at least a six-month commitment, and volunteers must have a bachelor’s degree or be enrolled in a four-year degree program. This includes community college students who are enrolled in a transfer program that will lead to a four-year degree. All volunteers also must attend a training session. Upcoming training sessions will be offered at the Marple Campus (901 South Media Line Road, Media) on:

  • Tuesday, September 17, from 6-8 p.m.
  • Thursday, September 19, from 6-8 p.m.

Tutors work with small groups or one-on-one with students. Students and volunteers meet for three hours per week in a public place. The College is currently looking for volunteers who can:

  • Help English-speaking immigrants who need to improve basic reading, writing and math skills before advancing to the GED classroom
  • Assist adult students from Delaware and Chester Counties who need to improve basic reading, writing and math skills before moving into the GED classroom
  • Help students who have not completed their GED credentials and are in need of higher-level math skills
  • Serve as classroom assistants and support GED instructors and students in the classroom

If you are interested in this rewarding opportunity, please complete an interest form at: www.dccc.edu/ged-tutor. For more information or questions, contact Jody Harman, GED Program Coordinator, at 484-237-6244.
