CURET is looking for individuals with a personal commitment to give something back to improve the lives of residents of the Hartford area. Volunteers’ skills should include patience and the ability to relate to adult learners of diverse backgrounds, which may include different cultures and varied socioeconomic levels.
A volunteer should be willing to participate in an initial training and debriefing session and is able to take part in the CURET cultural experience.
Duties include, but are not limited to, working within CURET’s curriculum for educating adult learners in adult literacy and numeracy; mentoring in the New Arrival Resource Center, computer/technology, Citizenship/Civics Education, Health Literacy, Financial Literacy, and teaching at various levels. We do not expect volunteers to be experts in the stated areas; workshops, seminars, and professional development opportunities are provided as support for our volunteers.
