Distance Learning Coach (Virtual Volunteer)

Our students need you and we value your precious time. This program will allow you to serve people that want to take responsibility; you can show them how by taking responsibility for serving your community for one hour a week.

A learning coach contacts students by phone, e-mail or schedule face-to-face sessions to review student progress, establish goals and celebrate success. Internet-based instruction supplements Adult Education students with the resources that offer flexible options to accommodate challenges that make classroom instruction difficult. Distance learning tools have a proven track record of improving GED test scores, assisting students in attaining the Georgia work ready certificate and passing college entrance test. Because the programs are Internet-based, students have access to instruction from any computer connected to the Internet and can supplement classroom time to accelerate progress. The learning coach helps the student manage the distance learning experience.

If you answer yes to two or more of the following questions, you will make a great distance learning virtual volunteer by being a learning coach for adult education students.

 

Volunteering from a home computer is different from working on site with an organization for many obvious reasons: there is usually more flexibility in your time, a greater degree of independence, and working independently. For some, these differences make volunteering ideal.
Setting your own schedule is one of the chief joys of virtual volunteering. You may have considered volunteering before, but your schedule is too demanding. What would you say if you could serve your community, at home on a Saturday morning, in your pajamas with a cup of coffee?
