Volunteering with ESL

There are many opportunities to be involved in the ESL ministry:

  • - Registration – Help with registration approximately two weeks prior to the start of class.
  • - Opportunities to assist include signing in the students, helping students fill out registration forms, monitor testing, grading tests.
  • - Teach a class. Teachers commit to teaching one two hour class once a week, either on a Tuesday or Thursday for the 11 week session.
  • - Assist in a classroom once a week, either on Tuesday or Thursday, for the 12 week session.
  • - Hospitality – There is a break time each day when the student break for a light snack and time of fellowship. Those helping with hospitality prepare the snack table for the break and clean up following the break. The students provide the snacks.
  • - Assist the Coordinator – the morning and evening ESL coordinators maintain attendance records, answer questions of the students and do a variety of administrative jobs. The assistance helps the coordinator with such responsibilities.
