LSI's Community Based English Language Leaning program empowers immigrants and refugees with numerous accessible online and in-person English classes led by knowledgeable, compassionate teachers. Participants gain language and social skills along with cultural awareness that enable them to quickly gain employment, integrate, and thrive in their new communities. LSI also has programming specifically for people over the age of 60 working towards their citizenship with extra support to foster community connections, improve quality of life, and work towards the goal of US citizenship.

How Volunteers Help:

Classroom volunteers assist the teacher in ensuring all students get the most out of class by helping with demonstrations, leading small group activities, working individually with students who need extra support, and more. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, volunteers at the Polk County Senior Center work with participants on a wider range of activities from English to art class to billiards tournaments.

Volunteers generally commit to one day/class per week for one session.
