Employment & Careers

Now Hiring

Updated 4/21/2021

In preparation for reopening post-COVID (and a future expansion), we are rebuilding our team! There’s never been a better time to join us.

Seeds of Literacy is run by a very small team thanks in large part to a veritable army of volunteers. Each member of the staff is curious, creative, and passionate about Adult Literacy. They aren’t afraid to jump in and assist in other areas. They are expert problem-solvers and trouble-shooters, and they value clear communication to make the operation work. If these are qualities you possess and you are interested in joining the Seeds Family, check out our job postings below.
