Memorial Assistance Ministries - West Campus

ESL Class

If you're compassionate, fluent in English, and can volunteer for 3 or 4 hours per week, we want YOU to help a small group of Houston adults learn to speak English. You'll meet some amazing people, experience the joy and fulfillment of helping others succeed, and know that you're making Houston a better place for all of us!

We have special need for volunteers in the evening, for classes that meet twice per week (Monday & Wednesday, or Tuesday & Thursday). Evening classes meet from 6pm - 8pm.

NO prior teaching experience or second language is required. We have transitioned our ESL classes to meeting remotely. If this volunteer opportunity is for you, we'll train you (remotely, two 2-hour sessions, free), match you with a small group of adult learners and support you as you get started on the exciting and hugely rewarding activity of helping your neighbors learn English as a second (or third!) language (ESL).

* Our tours are currently suspended due to COVID-19. If you're interested, let us know and we'll set up a conversation! And, w hile it’s currently possible to volunteer from anywhere, we really value connecting learners and volunteers within the Greater Houston area. Something special happens when we’re all working together to benefit the (same) greater community.*

Please get in touch for further information, including how to get involved once we're able to return to in-person classes. Kindly check your spam account for our reply. Sometimes messages are blocked by email filters.
