Program Overview

Our agency has three major areas of focus: English Language Learning (ELL) classes, Tutoring, and Road to Work (RTW) for Refugees. All services are free of charge.

English classes consist of Family Literacy, English level 1 and 2/3, Basic Computer Literacy, and Health Literacy. Classes are held for 15 weeks during the spring and fall and 12 weeks during the summer.

Learners are assessed by instructors and/or staff at the beginning and end of class.

The tutoring program provides one-to-one interaction with the learner which improves their English skills and has a dramatic impact on improving their learning outcomes and increasing self-sufficiency.

RTW provides intensive employment-related training services. We use a combination of one-to-one coaching and group sessions to accelerate the student's learning. We teach pre-employment skills such as how to write and use a resume, how to complete an application online, and how to practice for an interview. Individual tutoring, Weekly Job Club, and Job Coaching are also offered.
