GRACE LUTHERAN CHURCH/Pelican Community Center and Lutheran Church

Image_202010141023

The Pelican Community Center and Lutheran Church has been providing free ESL Classes to the multi-cultural and multi-ethnic communities within Collier County, specifically Naples area. Unfortunately, we have lost many of our volunteer base due to the shutdowns and Covid-19 issues.

The success of our program relies heavily on our volunteer base. We would love to have the opportunity to interview all who are interested in helping adult learners to speak English. We have a large community center, we will be practicing "social distancing."

Should you need any additional information, you can contact Holly at (386) 290-3456. You can also email me your interest at: harrellap@gmail.com. Thank you.

Mission Statement

The Pelican Community Center's mission is to serve those in the multi-ethnic communities within Golden Gate/Naples/Collier County by providing a safe, comfortable and welcoming place for everyone. To provide language development and literacy classes, conversational Spanish classes, and to strengthen families by providing fellowship, companionship, encouragement and fun.

Description

The Pelican Community Center and Lutheran Church provides a personalized and unique experience for children and adults with weekly English classes and conversational Spanish classes. Our goal is to serve children and adults to achieve independence and empowerment through literacy. In addition the center works with individuals to assist in their successful path to citizenship. Most of the families we serve are at the poverty level. The language barrier is a main factor that limits the opportunity for employment. A secondary factor is caused by the waiting period for obtaining work permits, social security numbers, etc.
