Part time GED Instructor
According to the BLS, the value of having a high school degree is over $8,000 per year. New Hope Ministries has operated a high school equivalency program for close to a decade, and has had many success experiences of people obtaining their degree and going on to obtain employment and higher education. Our GED instructor serves an important role in coaching our students not only to educational success, but to overcome challenges in their lives. We currently use the HISET curriculum and have offered virtual instruction during the pandemic, but are preparing to return to in person instruction soon.
We are seeking a GED instructor who will help our students and program achieve success. This would be a great part time job for a current or retired educator. We’re looking for qualities of being able to show kindness while holding students accountable, in essence believing in them until they can believe in themselves and not letting them give up on their goals. The qualified candidate will hold a bachelor’s degree in education or its equivalent, be comfortable in providing remedial instruction in general education high school subjects, be able to pass a child abuse clearance, and possess excellent communication, leadership, and organizational skills. Most of all we are looking for a candidate who shares our mission to share the love of Christ by helping our neighbors in need.
We expect this position to involve evening hours, four nights per week, with an expected twelve hour per week schedule. Instruction could take place at any of New Hope’s 8 service locations, depending upon need. Additional hours could be made available for candidates with ESL or nursing experience. Position will include paid time off, retirement, and other optional benefits. We would welcome inquiries about the position by calling our program director Sue at 717-432-2087, ext. 210. Applications can be submitted through Indeed or by mailing your resume and our employment application (in the box to the right) to New Hope.
