About

We help some of the thousands of UN sponsored refugees who have settled in Arizona learn to speak English so they can provide for their familes, adapt to American culture, and beocome US citizens.

Volunteer "Encouragers" supplement software programs to help each student learn to speak English at his/her own pace and develop personal relationships.

"I don't really know how to teach English and I don't know how to develop a relationship with someone who seems so different from me....But this sounds like something meaningful I would want to do! What does it take?"

Step 1

  • Can you read English and speak it clearly?
  • Can you smile with an adult from another culture?
  • Can you volunteer for a two-hour class per week? For six weeks?

Step 2

  • Contact us to learn how to make a difference by encouraging adult refugee students as they learn to speak English using computer programs such as Rosetta Stone.

Step 3

  • Experience transformation in your own life and the students’ lives as you get to know and enrich each other!
