Focus Points Family Resource Center
ELA Classroom Volunteer
|Project Term:||October 1-June 30|
North Metro Area
Volunteers will work with adult immigrants and refugees who are learning English to live and work successfully in their new community. They will assist the classroom instructors by working with small groups or individuals one-on-one. Volunteers may work with various levels but there is a strong need for those who are able to work with early literacy focusing on the beginning elements of reading and writing.
Classes are held either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday and are offered in the morning, afternoon and evening depending on the site. Locations vary across the metro-Denver area.
