Hands Across the World

  • 4 people are interested

Hands Across the World is a nonprofit organization that provides classroom instruction in ESL and other skills for immigrant and refugee newcomers to St. Cloud. We are in need of an instructor to lead the early childhood program online over Google Meet. Our goal is to give the children the love and attention they need while we help them learn English and adjust to life in St. Cloud through activities and games. The teachers will plan and carry out activities for the children alongside the lead preschool teacher. Teachers will also write reports after each class about the children's behaviors and skills. If you have worked in or are currently studying education or social services, this is a great opportunity to learn and connect with children of different cultures. We do need one volunteer who is bilingual in English and Spanish as one of the classes only speaks Spanish.

Must live in/near St. Cloud area to receive materials for classes

About Hands Across the World

Location:

823 1st St. South, St. Cloud, MN 56301, St. Cloud, MN 56301, US

Mission Statement

We provide a first contact for newly arrived immigrants and refugees who do not have language or living skills necessary to thrive in our community. In a classroom environment, we help both children and parents aquire the tools needed to become integrated citizens of Central Minnesota.

Description

Hands Across the World offers English, sewing, computer, and job skills classes to refugees and immigrants in the St. Cloud area. Very often, the Hands Across the World classroom is the first formal school environment our students have attended. Adults learn the four communication skills--listening, speaking, reading, and writing--so that they are better equipped to communicate with others, continue their education or secure employment. Children are cared for and taught in a separate classroom. Our students gain the skill and confidence to move on to community adult basic education. Over two dozen students have enrolled to work on their GED, and many will work towards a technical education at St. Cloud Technical College. Over 80 adults and their children have been served by Hands Across the World since its founding in 2003. This project emphasizes cultural diversity, bonding and new friendships, self sufficiency and welcoming new citizens to our community.
