Founded in 1850 by Gold Rush pioneers, Jewish Family and Children's Services (JFCS) of San Francisco is a catalyst for change, transforming our deeply held belief in the intrinsic value of each human life into a creative vision for alleviating suffering, enhancing potential and healing all who are in need.
We need volunteers to teach English to small groups of seniors - every week day except Wednesday. Ideal times to volunteer would be approximately 9:45 to 11:15 for the morning shift, and 3 to 4:30 for the afternoon shift. However, this is flexible.
This is a great opportunity to work in a small group with English learners at varied levels of English language proficiency. Perfect if you are training to be a TOEFL/TOESL teacher. But advanced training is not necessary - patience, kindness, enthusiasm, respect for elders, and love of the English language are. There may also be opportunities to tutor English one-on-one.
