We will soon be recruiting volunteers for Summer 2018. Let us know you're interested and we'll be sure to send you information on upcoming orientations when dates are available.
Help low-income families get ahead by improving their English!
Learning basic English is essential to the success of our residents; without this skill many will find it hard to get a job, pay their bill or even decipher the bus schedule. Foundation Communities’ ESL classes are available for free to anyone in the community ages 18+.
Classes are held Monday through Thursday each week from 9-11 am and 6:30-8:30 pm at our Sierra Vista learning center (South Austin) and Trails at Vintage Creek Learning Center (Northeast Austin), and - new in 2018 - from 6:30-8:30 pm at our Lakeline Station Learning Center (Northwest Austin).
- Time Commitment: We ask that volunteers commit to a minimum of one class per week (about 2 hours) per semester (summer, fall and/or spring). You can help foster a sense of community and independence in our residents and you do not need to be bilingual to do it!
