Memorial Assistance Ministries

  • 4 people are interested

If you're compassionate, fluent in English, and can volunteer a couple times 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!

Classes meet Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday, and volunteers are especially needed 9am - 11am and 6pm - 8pm. These classes will be held at our West Campus: 2424 Wilcrest Dr., Houston, TX 77042

NO prior teaching experience or second language is required. If this volunteer opportunity is for you, we'll train you, match you with a 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).
