Adult Education Instructor - ABE, Adult Literacy Program

Who We Are: CAMBA is a community of staff, volunteers, clients, donors, neighbors and partners who work together to build an inclusive New York City, where all children and adults have access to the resources and supports they need to thrive.  We take a comprehensive approach by offering more than 160 integrated programs in:  Education & Youth Development, Family Support, Job Training & Employment Support Services, Health, Housing, and Legal Services. We reach more than 65,000 individuals and families each year at our 90 locations, including 20,000 youth.  CAMBA serves a diverse cross section of New Yorkers from new mothers in Brownsville to job seekers in the Rockaways. More than half of our clients are immigrants and refugees from around the globe. Over 85% of our families are in living in poverty, reflecting the challenges faced by nearly 1.7 million New Yorkers today. 

Adult Basic Education (ABE): CAMBA offers classes to people who live or work in Brooklyn’s Flatbush/East Flatbush communities. We target people who are most in need of literacy services. For instance, we are an approved NYC Human Resources Administration (HRA) educational site. HRA allows clients to join our classes, and the center’s Case Manager reports their attendance on a regular basis.. In our ABE/HSE prep classes, we teach reading comprehension, writing (English grammar and letter/essay composition), math, test-taking, and workplace skills to students who are not enrolled or not required to be enrolled in secondary school.
