Adult Education and Literacy volunteers needed at OTC

Volunteer positions are available for Ozarks Technical Community College’s Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) classes, which will be held this spring in the following counties: Greene, Stone, Taney, Christian, Webster, Polk, Dallas, and Laclede.  Volunteer schedules vary by location. Most volunteers average 2-3 hours of work per week.

AEL volunteers assist instructors in preparing adults for the high school equivalency test (HiSet). Volunteers work one-on-one with students in a variety of academic subjects including math, language arts and reading. Volunteers may also assist AEL instructors with any clerical or record-keeping needs in the classroom.

AEL volunteers must possess a high school diploma or high school equivalency diploma. Prior teaching experience is not required and free training is provided. Volunteers should also possess the following traits: patience, optimism, friendliness, a sense of humor, and the desire to make a difference in someone’s life.

Persons interested in becoming an AEL volunteer may contact Kathy Funk, literacy coordinator, at 417-447-8865 or
