Offering Free English Language Classes for Adults
Literacy Volunteers at Family Centers believes that access to education is critical to becoming economically self-sufficient and independent.
Our adult students acquire the literacy skills and knowledge necessary to achieve personal and occupational goals. With the help of our dedicated volunteer tutors, Literacy Volunteers at Family Centers offers FREE English language instruction and basic literacy programs for adults and families.
Proficiency in reading, writing and communication is essential to further advancement, both personally and professionally, during the COVID-19 crisis. We are offering a full range of virtual classes from beginner to advanced levels. A Smartphone or computer device will be necessary to successfully attend class.
Through our partnerships with other community organizations, we are able to provide small group lessons to all ESL residents of lower Fairfield County with our emphasis on the Greenwich and Stamford communities. To view of sample student writings, click here.
