Volunteers can assist refugee clients in learning English in the following ways:
Enrolling in ESL Classes: Instructions can be found on the ESL Class Enrollment page.
ESOL Job Class at Winston-Salem office: Volunteers can participate in facilitating and assisting with in-office ESL classes for adults who are waiting to be employed. These classes provide basic language skills and community connections, and help students prepare to communicate in the workplace.
In-Home ESL Tutoring Program: One volunteer (or a couple) can be paired with one client adult (or couple) to complete 30 hours of ESL tutoring within about 3 months, in the client’s home. This is a great way to build relationship, practice conversation, build relevant vocabulary, and personalize curriculum to fit the needs, proficiency, and progress of each student.
