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.
Also during class, one of our Abounding Service leaders will initiate group conversation, teach a short lesson with vocabulary in a biblical context, and ask questions from the US citizenship test. We look forward to serving with you!
