Center for Independent Living now seeking volunteer tutors

The Center for Independent Living of South Florida is seeking volunteer tutors for its tutoring program. The program provides supports to young adults with disabilities who are enrolled in Special Diploma programs or GED programs in Miami-Dade County Public Schools.

The volunteer must have a college degree and be able to pass a teacher background check. Background screening fees would be reimbursed by the center. The center also will reimburse mileage expenses to and from the schools. The three tutoring locations are Lindsey Hopkins Technical Education Center, Miami Lakes Educational Center, and Robert Morgan Educational Center.

The survival of the tutoring program is critical to insure that these young people with disabilities obtain the academic support needed for them to graduate with a diploma and transition into the workplace.

Interested individuals should forward their resume to the attention of Kelly Greene, executive director, by email at Kelly@Soflacil.org or send fax to 305- 751-8944.
