Through a partnership with Literacy Source, Neighborhood House is starting a "Ready to Work" ESL program. The program is designed to help people improve their English skills who want to find a job, open up their work options, or attend college or a training program. The program will be free and participants will have a case manager to help with support services to overcome any additional barriers to employment.
The class will be taught by a lead instructor. Volunteers in this position will be present during the class to provide individual support in ESL to clients as they go through the work.
