Job Description:

CTEP at Adult Education Center

We here at the Adult Education Center couldn't think of a more joyful, challenging, and rewarding place to work. Every day we are enriched by the lives of our students, who are mainly refugees and immigrants from around the world establishing new lives here in Minnesota. Our student population is typically 60% female and 40% male; largest age group served is 25-44 years of age; and our top language groups served are Spanish, English, Somali, and Arabic speakers, in that order. Students here are some of the most motivated, hard-working, inspiring people we have met and contribute to our work culture of learning and community building. The Adult Education Center - Columbia Heights/Fridley (CHF) is one site location for the eight school district consortium, Metro North Adult Basic Education: We serve adult learners who are 17 years or older, assisting them with reading, writing, math, and English listening and speaking skills. Our free programming helps learners build academic skills and plan their next steps for post-secondary opportunities or career pathways. Similar to our students, our staff are a creative and dynamic bunch of people dedicated to instilling skills and knowledge that will help our students thrive. Licensed teachers, literacy assistants, clerical staff, a team of volunteers - and a CTEP member! - support learners on a daily basis. You would be serving as a member of the AmeriCorps Community Technology Empowerment Project (CTEP), which bridges the "digital divide" for new Immigrants and low-income communities in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Join our cohort of 35 CTEP AmeriCorps members and help make the information age accessible to all. CTEP is a project of Saint Paul Neighborhood Network (SPNN).
