ESL resources for non-native ASL Speaker

I'm working with a woman who is in an interesting situation. She is deaf and was born and raised in Somalia. She learned ASL when she moved to the US a few years ago.

Dream Job --> Dream Career

I have a really cool job: I help low-income/minority students get into college.
(It's perfect for me because I'm passionate about educational access and I get to work with young people one-on-one, but I'm not tied down to a classroom.)
Right now, my job is short-term, a la Teach for America, but I'd like to stay in the educational field and turn this job into a long-term career.

My question is two fold: How do I go about finding jobs like this and what sort of educational credentials/degrees do I need to qualify for these jobs? [more inside]
