About the Company: Literacy Partners (www.literacypartners.org) is a non-profit organization that provides adult education classes for individuals working towards a GED. Our classes are held Monday – Thursday, 6pm-9pm. Going back to school is a very courageous and challenging thing to do for adults, especially for those who were failed by the k-12 school system and have literacy levels below 8th grade. Our students are strivers – they made a conscious decision to improve their reading, writing, and math skills and are often looked upon by their community members as leaders. Their reasons for going back to school are diverse but include: wanting to read to kids/grandkids, wanting to get a better job to support family, wanting to turn life around. Our students also face great difficulties. Many work several jobs and attend classes. Many are sole providers for their families. Many are formerly incarcerated, immigrants, public housing residents, and/or live below the poverty line here in NYC.
How To Apply: Please email statement of interest (1-2 paragraphs) and resume and 3 references to: fatimaa@literacypartners.org.
