Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
As an integral part of Adult and Community Education (ACE) of Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), the mission of the Adult English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Program is to provide opportunities for adult English language learners (ELLs) to acquire the proficiency in English and cross-cultural communication they need to succeed in their roles as workers, citizens, family members and lifelong learners.
The FCPS Adult ESOL program is dedicated to providing adult students with the practical English language they need in their everyday lives, as well as English skills that will help them advance into post-secondary education and career and technical training. Because our students come to us with diverse learning needs and goals, we utilize approaches and practices that integrate students’ voices in the instructional process. We regard teachers and students as partners in the learning experience. Our students are expected to be actively engaged and responsible for their own progress. Our teachers are facilitators who provide opportunities and guidance. Above all, we strive to create a supportive and challenging learning atmosphere where a community of learners can grow and achieve their goals.
