Volunteer Opportunities For Winter/Spring 2020

HISPANIC CHILD LITERACY

Reading Tutor (West Bend Location)
We are seeking high school/college students or adults with a passion for Education and helping kids learn. At our after school Read to Succeed program, you will help Hispanic elementary school students with their English reading skills, as well as help with their homework. The program is on Tuesdays and Thursdays, follows the school year and does not currently cover summer months. You do not have to know Spanish to work with these students. You are welcome to volunteer on Tuesdays and Thursdays if your schedule allows, but you will not be required to. We will schedule volunteers on a monthly basis to see volunteers’ availability, and will send that schedule to all participating volunteers. This program will end in early May 2020.

HISPANIC ADULT LITERACY

English Classroom Aides
We are looking for adult volunteers that would like to help out in our adult English classrooms as aides to the teachers in our West Bend and Hartford locations. You do not have to know Spanish to work with these students. You would not have to volunteer every Tues & Thurs – whatever works best with your schedule.
The fall 2019 semester goes for 12 weeks and will end before Christmas.

West Bend morning classes start Tuesday, January 21st and are every Tuesday and Thursday from 10:30am-12pm at Casa Guadalupe (419 Roosevelt Dr. West Bend, WI 53090)

Hartford evening classes start Tuesday, January 21st and are every Tuesday and Thursday from 6-7:30pm at Quad (1900 W Sumner St, Hartford, WI 53027)

Tutors for Adults

We are always looking for adult volunteers that would like to help local Spanish speaking individuals one on one with their English acquisition outside the classroom. You do not have to know Spanish to work with these students.

  • Schedule can be very flexible – whatever works best for you and the student once or twice a week. When meeting a student for the first time, a representative from Casa Guadalupe would like to be there to introduce you to each other.
  • Training on teaching English as a second language is available for these volunteers.

U.S. Citizenship Tutors
At times, we receive requests from community members who would like to study for their U.S. Citizenship. Tutors will meet one on one with the client at a flexible time that works for both parties, and will help the client study the 100 questions about U.S. government and history, as well as assist the client in filling out the N-400 Naturalization Form. Training is provided.

Spanish Teacher for Adults
Many non-Hispanic community members have been requesting to learn more Spanish. We are searching for a qualified Spanish teacher with at least 2 years experience teaching the language. At this moment we are looking for someone to teach an 8-12 week semester at Casa Guadalupe during Fall/Spring semesters. We would like the class to meet twice a week. *This can be negotiated as a paid position.
