(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 GED Program is seeking volunteer math tutors to help prepare adult learners for the math portion of the GED test. Volunteers are also needed to assist adult learners from other countries in improving their basic reading comprehension and math skills.
Tutors will support GED classes that are funded through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education to support Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE). Volunteers will assist small groups at the following Delaware County Community College locations:
- Exton Center (906 & 912 Springdale Drive, Exton PA)
- Marple Campus (901 S. Media Line Road, Media, PA)
- Upper Darby Center (1570 Garrett Road, Upper Darby, PA)
As part of the ABLE grant requirements, volunteers are required to attend a training session. A session will be held on the Marple Campus on Thursday, March 14 from 6 to 8 p.m. Volunteers also 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.
