Program Overview

The facility offers free ESL classes, one-on-one tutoring, and a computer lab for independent self-study. We teach Family Literacy classes specially designed for ESL adults with children in third grade or younger, a Citizenship class for those preparing to pass the U.S. citizenship test, a Language Partnership class for those looking to learn either English or Spanish, and a leadership program for recent immigrants looking to strengthen their leadership potential and become more involved in their community. We depend crucially on volunteers to provide English tutoring and teach classes.
