Adult Education Teaching and Program Assistant – Academy of Hope

The Academy of Hope began in January 1985 when four students and two volunteer teachers, Marja Hilfiker and Gayle Boss, came together to study for the General Educational Development Exam (GED) in a small room of an apartment building. Marja and Gayle envisioned the school as a community of students and teachers: Academy of Hope will be a school in which the main subject for everyone, teachers and students alike, is not reading, writing, or math, but hope. Hope comes only when we care and are cared for. In this Academy, all of us are teachers because all of us can care for one another. All of us are students since all of us need to be cared for.Our mission is to provide high quality adult basic education in a manner that changes lives and improves our community.

Teaching and Program Assistants at Academy of Hope Adult PCS sites are responsible for working with teachers to promote a supportive, empowering learning community for our adult learners and for delivering quality content area instruction. Teaching and Program Assistants provide administrative and technical support to the Programs team, including Program Manager, Registrar and Data Support Specialist.
