You get to help teach, tutor, mentor and assist others to learn English, impacting their future towards citizenship, and survival skills, by assisting them to communicate in English they are learning that by speaking the native language here, they can obtain better jobs, increase income and education for themselves and there families. This increases their successes of survival but not just surviving but now thriving, living! Its an amazing opportunity to make such an impact! I really enjoy volunteering here.
