No One Left Behind is seeking English Instructors (English as a Second Language) for the San Francisco East Bay Chapter
No One Left Behind serves Afghan combat interpreters and combat support personnel who were promised asylum in the U. S. after serving in the Afghan war. Today, they are being forced to leave their homes in Afghanistan due to real threats by the Islamic State and Taliban for working for the US military. These refugees, who risked their lives and those of their families for our troops, arrive each week in the US unemployed with few funds and no household goods. Our mission is to provide them with the support to start a successful life in the US.
Our first priority is to provide a tutor to those women who are isolated in their homes with small children who are not able to attend English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. Second priority is those who really want to learn and practice English to get jobs to support their families. Some public ESL classes only provide 6 hours a week of English, which for highly-motivated women is not enough.
ESL instructors set their own schedules to meet with their families. You will meet with your student (usually a woman) in their home at least twice monthly and may choose to tutor two adults at a time. If there are less-than-school age children in the home, a second individual may accompany you to occupy the children while you teach. The clients mostly speak Farsi, Dari, Urdu, Arabic or Persian.
