Catherine McAuley Center: Tutor Development VISTA, IAMNCC
The Catherine McAuley Center offers hope and opportunity through educational and supportive services that promote stability, skill-building, and connection. The Educational Services program helps over 450 refugee, immigrant, and adult learners in a typical year. This VISTA position will build capacity by evaluating existing volunteer training practices and developing new materials and processes to better train, develop, and support tutors to carry out educational services including English, math, computer, conversation skills, and citizenship exam prep. This project is part of the Community Corps VISTA Program, operated by Iowa & Minnesota Campus Compact. The program strives to eliminate poverty through campus-community partnerships by placing capacity building support in nonprofit organizations and higher education institutions. ***Please also send cover letter and resume to supervisor. Interviews will occur on a rolling basis. Preference given to candidates who apply early.***
