Looking for a secondary site next fall? Consider working with refugees and immigrants on-campus.

The Linking Through Language and Technology (LTLT) program provides English as a second language (ESL) tutoring and computer competency training to University of Richmond staff members for whom English is not their first language.  Many of these staff members are immigrants and refugees. The LTLT student coordinator is responsible for scheduling the tutoring times, recruiting and training tutors, and maintaining relationships with the staff departments and participants. Day-to-day tasks include coordinating schedule changes, communicating with supervisors about absences, and checking in with tutors. The student coordinator also can participate in the program and tutor a student of their own. The time commitment is roughly 3-4 hours a week, but will require more hours in the beginning of the semester and fewer as the semester goes on. If interested, please contact Adrienne Piazza, CCE Program Manager, as soon as possible, at apiazza@richmond.edu.
