POSITION DESCRIPTION


Position Title: English Innovations Kids Activities Coordinator


Location: Highline United Methodist Church (13015 1st Ave S, Burien, WA 98168)


Purpose: Coordinate activities for the children of adult students who will be enrolled in the English Innovations

Program at Burien site. Providing oversight of the children gives the adults the opportunity to participate in an

evening class to increase their English language and digital literacy skills. The overall goal is for immigrant

parents to better achieve personal and professional goals, and integrate more fully into civic, linguistic,

economic and cultural life in the United States.


Project Overview: Limited English proficiency is a significant barrier for many immigrants to fully integrate into

life in the U.S. — getting a good job, having educational options, and participating in civic life. Limited English

language skills are compounded by the gap in digital literacy in our technologically advancing world. English

Innovations® is a blended social learning model that integrates English language learning in a collaborative,

supportive classroom environment with online tools that enable self-paced, independent learning. The learning

framework emphasizes a community-based approach, highlighting the importance of parent engagement and

peer support. Kids Activities Coordinators will support Adult English Language Learners by providing childcare for

their children while they are in class.

and jus(ce at the local, state, and na(onal levels through building power in immigrant communi(es in
