English Classes

Village ESOL offers language classes to engage and connect the multicultural groups in our community. As one of the most diverse areas in the state, Washington County is home to immigrants, refugees, temporary professionals, migrant workers, spouses of visiting scholars and many more. All are welcome at Village ESOL to practice English and share their cultures. Our vision is dedicated to active outreach through educational activities focused on language development and cultural understanding. These activities help learners and volunteers realize their God-given potential as uniquely gifted individuals.

ESOL Volunteer Information

Village ESOL provides volunteers with opportunities to“Live the Gospel” as we serve neighbors who want to focus on improving their English language skills. There are a variety of ways you can participate.

How to Get Involved

Review the Volunteer Opportunities below. Decide which would be a good fit for your gifts and schedule.

Consider observing a class or participating as a Registration Volunteer. This will give you a chance to see outreach in action, who participates and whether or not this service is a good fit for your interests and gifts.

Complete a Volunteer Application (Online).

Meet with the Program Director. Other steps in the process include an application review, contact with your references, or an orientation to our online platform. If there is a good fit between program needs and volunteer interests, an assignment may be offered. If all volunteer positions are full, an applicant may be encouraged to apply for future sessions.

Teaching Volunteers

Gifts: Administration, compassion, exhortation

Activities: Teach, plan and prepare lessons (or assist with any or all of these activities) using established curriculum, have a passion for helping adult immigrants and refugees, and attend on-going training. Teaching assistants help as needed, substitute when a teacher is unavailable, facilitate student group work, take attendance and distribute information to students as needed. Classroom responsibilities may be shared as agreed among teachers. All classroom volunteers should encourage and pray for students, co-volunteers and leadership.

Private tutoring opportunities also available. Tutoring volunteers would provide more one on one English language teaching.
