ESL Classes in Fall

Honor's Civic Engagement Interns commence ESL Classes
New ESL Classes catered towards refugee needs are underway. The University of Arizona Honor's Civic Engagement Interns started ESL Classes the last week of September teaching students greetings, how to process forms and day-to-day English terms. These highly motivated teachers will continue to give classes and assist refugees in the acculturation process through introducing material that is based on real life-skills in the United States and 'real' material, like coupons, newspaper advertisements, bills, forms and what the students want to learn. Classes also serve to introduce refugees to Iskashitaa's programs: harvesting, diaper donations, food redistribution, food preservation workshops and our Sewing and Crafts Circle.
Know of anyone that can benefit from these classes? We are enrolling new students everyday! Contact Lizbeth at for enrollment information.

Class Schedule:

-Tuesdays from 6:00 - 7:30pm at Desert Tree Apartments
Teachers: Janine Clark and Alexis Lozcano

-Thursdays from 6:30 - 8:00pm at Oasis Apartments
Teachers: Rachel Wehr and Alyssa Caraway
