Washington, PA – Community Action Southwest (CAS) is currently recruiting volunteers in Washington and Greene Counties to tutor students in its Adult Education Program. The Adult Education Program is designed to assist area residents age 17 or older to obtain their high school equivalency diploma and/or increase their learning skills so they may enroll in a trade school or college or gain employment.

Volunteers are needed to assist Pennsylvania-Certified Teachers with classes in Bentleyville, Carmichaels, Donora, Washington and Waynesburg. Classes are held on various days and times each week in those communities.

Volunteers can also assist with tutoring students outside of the classroom through individual sessions at area libraries.

Training will be provided and volunteers will be asked to tutor students in subjects in which they are comfortable including reading, writing, science, social studies and math.

Volunteers must either have a Bachelor’s Degree or be actively pursuing a four-year degree at a college or university.

CAS receives funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Bureau of Postsecondary & Adult Education in addition to the Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development to operate its Adult Education Program.

CAS’ Adult Education Program is part of the agency’s Community Action WORKS initiative designed to serve its clients in a comprehensive fashion. Addressing adult education, employability, skills, housing and asset development, while creating opportunities and providing support for economic independence is the framework in which client success is realized.
