English as a Second Language (ESL)

Introductory and advanced ESL classes are provided four days a week, three hours daily. Participants increase English literacy skills while learning functional life skills. Classes incorporate financial literacy, computer classes, health education, civics education, and information about community resources and early childhood development. Participants acquire skills to advocate for the wellbeing of their families and are prepared to negotiate their lives, secure employment, pursue educational goals, support the education of their children, and civically engage in their communities. Evening classes are also available. Annually, 100-120 adults participate in classes.
