Become a Volunteer

Portland Adult Education has a great need for volunteers to assist in classrooms and to work as tutors with students who are learning English. We have students from more than sixty different countries along with students born in the United States who are working to gain their high school diploma or GED/HiSET.


Tutors work with students to reinforce conversation, reading and writing done in class, and some volunteers help students prepare for their citizenship test. Math tutors are also needed for individual instruction.


Tutoring sessions take place at the Portland Adult Education building on 14 Locust St. and usually occur once a week for an hour. Classroom volunteering is once a week for 2 hours.   In addition, PAE is looking for mentors to help professional students re-enter the medical, engineering, educational, legal, and other fields.
