Instructor, ESOL & Digital Skills (Full Time)

Posted by The Welcoming Center on October 3, 2023

The Welcoming Center (TWC) mission is to promote inclusive economic growth through immigrant integration. We seek to open doors of economic opportunity for immigrants of all education and skill levels and to build immigrants’ individual and collective agency to address barriers to integration and well-being. TWC does this through training programs focused on social, civic, and economic engagement which enhance skills and expand opportunities. TWC believes that immigrants broaden the productivity, profitability, and stability of this region and contribute to both Pennsylvania’s and the nation’s economic growth. Primary programs and initiatives include Workforce Development, Entrepreneurship, ESOL/Digital Literacy, and Community Engagement. TWC is based in Philadelphia, PA.

The Instructor will provide English instruction integrated with digital literacy and other critical workforce and life skills to adult learners in the Philadelphia area, with a particular focus on Northeast Philadelphia. As part of this role, the Instructor will coordinate and teach TWC’s English for Job Search class, a 9-week class that teaches English and computer skills to support intermediate-level English Language Learners (ELLs) in conducting a U.S-based job search. The Instructor will also play a significant role in developing and supporting digital literacy activities for English Language Learners in Northeast Philadelphia. The Instructor will work with the Manager of ESOL and Digital Skills Training to develop and refine curriculum, engage volunteers, and work with TWC’s Career Specialists and the Student Support & Intake Coordinator to ensure that ESOL and digital skills training participants gain language proficiency, job opportunities, and social and economic integration. As a key part of the ESOL and Digital Skills Training team at The Welcoming Center, the Instructor will also contribute to the vision for the ESOL program, including identifying meaningful ways to engage participants in leadership and volunteer opportunities within the organization and beyond.
