To help employees learn basic language skills and/or prepare for the Graduate School of Education, the Bridge Program has teamed up with doctoral students in the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL), the leader in research on adult learning at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
The NCSALL graduate students have helped develop the teaching approach used in the Bridge classes, and have arranged the intensive one-on-one tutoring sessions offered to every participant who wants it. But NCSALL could use some help of its own.
According to NCSALL grad student Maricel Santos, volunteer tutors are needed for the Bridge Program on an ongoing basis to help teachers with classroom instruction and individual tutoring.
“We do expect a minimum commitment of one to four hours a week,” says Santos. “But we will provide all the training.”
Harvard faculty, staff, and graduate students interested in volunteering can contact Santos at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at (617) 495-8503.
