Do you want to be a positive influence in bridging communication barriers? Volunteer to lead an English class for seniors living at Newark Gardens! We are looking for a volunteer to assist on Friday afternoons. SAHA serves a very diverse demographic of seniors in the East Bay, a large percentage of which have limited English-speaking proficiency. The volunteer will work with residents who are eagerly seeking accessible English instruction to learn how to communicate in emergencies, converse with doctors and health care providers, and interact with others in everyday conversation. They are enthusiastic and greatly appreciate their ESL instructors.

If you're looking to make a difference in your community, this is a wonderful opportunity to gain teaching experience with students who are eager to learn.
