Volunteer in Our Home English Language Learners Outreach (HELLO) Program!
The next virtual HELLO Orientation is Thursday, March 16th at 6:00PM via Zoom.
Here is the Zoom link for that session
One big challenge many of our New American clients face when they arrive is a language barrier. Those who speak little to no English will receive the help of an interpreter to understand important conversations, but this is not a long-term solution for carrying out day-to-day tasks and getting integrated into the Buffalo community.
Some may leave the house for in-person English courses.
However, for those who are unable, we offer English lessons through our Home English Language Learners Outreach (HELLO) Volunteer Program. By becoming a HELLO Tutor, you will travel to someone’s home and teach them English. It’s a great way to get involved to help Buffalo’s diverse refugee population.
This opportunity requires a commitment of 3 hours a week for 8 weeks and makes a huge difference in the lives of our New American neighbors.
No Previous Experience Required!
