Adult literacy, the capacity to speak, read and write English, is a basic human need for success of those immigrants and refugees who come to us for service. A major first step in the development of English language acquisition for motivated adults to learn English is through ESOL classes. For many, acquiring these basic English skills is the essential first step to achieve a better life.
Without our volunteer tutors and donations to keep our ESOL program affordable, those we serve and have served over 15 years would have, in some instances, nowhere to learn. More than two thousand students from over twenty six countries have come to us for instruction, and there is always a waiting list for students to begin instruction. You can help by volunteering or donating to the ESOL program.
We are also pleased to be an affiliate of and an organizational member of the ProLiteracy Educational Network.
ESOL classes are held September-December and January-May, Monday through Thursday, 9:30-11:30 a.m. Cost is $50 per semester.
