A Faith That Does Justice (AFTDJ is an interfaith organization that challenges people to experience God by living their faith intentionally in service to others. We do this by showing how unjust societal structures marginalize people and by acting to help those in need. Our vision is people intentionally living their faith in action.

The program director of the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program oversees providing people with limited English language skills the opportunity to learn and improve their English skills so they may avail themselves of rewarding job opportunities and participate more fully in their community. We prefer a Director whose primary language is other than English yet is literate in English. The Director does not need teaching experience. The Director’s specific responsibilities for the operational and administrative oversight of the program include:

  • Coordinating the program’s ESOL courses (currently 3 twelve-week sessions per year)
  • Maintaining and coordinating the program curriculum with our program partner Jewish Vocational Service (JVS)
  • Recruiting and engaging volunteer ESOL teachers and tutors
  • Supervising volunteer ESOL teachers and tutors in their classroom activities
  • Coordinating and communicating JVS activities involving volunteer teachers and students
  • Recruiting and qualifying prospective students for future classes
  • Providing an environment that encourages students to punctually attend and fully participate in classes
  • Providing outplacement assistance to students upon completion of their training
  • Maintaining academic records of students including registration forms, pre and post-testing results, attendance, course completion, etc.
  • Liaising as needed with the provider of our classroom facilities
  • Maintaining close communication with teachers and other volunteers
  • Maintaining close communication with JVS to ensure that our collaborative efforts are producing optimal results
  • The program director is not expected to regularly attend the ESOL classes
