Giving the Gift of Language: Free English Classes

The Problem

Free English classes are offered to our community two nights a week. With atleast fifty students in attendanace, our services have helped immigrants from more than 15 nations. Being in Texas, most of our students are from Mexico, but some are from Asia as well. Our volunteer program began two and a half years ago by college students and has been run solely by college students ever since. Every class, we come face to face with the desperate need for these men and women to learn English. They need jobs to provide for their families. They need to be able to call the doctor when their children get sick. They need to be able to function in society by doing the basic things like grocery shopping and inviting other children to their child's birthday party. They need friends in this country that is so familiar to us but so foreign to them.
