About

As part of our education and employment programs for refugees, we offer English as a Second Language classes throughout the city. However, it's not always possible for refugees to attend these classes due to transportation issues or lack of childcare. By becoming an ESL mentor, you can help remove these barriers and assist refugees, secondary migrants and immigrants with acculturation to Omaha and the English language. ESL mentors act as a teacher, advocate, and friend. Contact is weekly, coordinated between volunteer and client. Assessment of student is conducted to determine skill level and training is available for volunteers. Experience working in an ESL setting is helpful but not required. No bilingual skills are necessary.

Requirements: Potential volunteers must pass a criminal background screen.
