Learning a language is not easy, but it is an important endeavor for many immigrants as they pursue employment and integrate into a new culture and community. We love to walk with people from other places as in the vulnerable, challenging, and relational process of learning English.
Our adult English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) program has multiple levels, is highly relational, and emphasizes verbal practice. As a volunteer conversation partner, you learn a lot and make a huge impact just by speaking English and building a friendship. There is no specific expertise or preparation required. And, you don't need to speak another language! Volunteers serve weekly on Tuesday or Thursday nights over a 12-week trimester.
