About

Can you imagine trying to fill a prescription at the pharmacy or opening a bank account without speaking English? How about trying to read road signs in Pinellas County when you've only used the cyrillic alphabet?

Not knowing our language isolates our immigrant and refugee neighbors living in the Tampa Bay area. It creates barriers to assimilation, education, safety and opportunity!

Help your neighbors learn English at Hope Square in Largo. You'll be joining a group of talented volunteer tutors and local students coming together weekly. It is more than teaching or learning English; it is building a stronger community together!
