The fall ESL (English as a Second Language) program hosted by The Church of the Good Shepherd is kicking off with a morning coffee open house this Saturday, September 13, from 10:00-10:45 a.m.! (The Church of the Good Shepherd, 3741 Garrett Road, Durham). Join us and other local churches who are passionate about interacting with and ministering to persons who would like to improve their English language skills – primarily refugees and immigrants from the Oak Creek Village community.
The open house will provide an overview of the history of the program, give a description of a typical teaching session, and identify specific needs for the fall session. Volunteer teachers, assistant teachers, conversation partners, and folks to offer hospitality and child care are needed. Volunteers must attend training on September 20 at 9:00 a.m., and be available for eight of the scheduled Saturday mornings 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., September 27 to December 13, with a break for Thanksgiving. For more information, please contact Dick McKown at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 15.
Hope to see you there!
