Join the English Language Learning Initiative!
The English Language Learning Initiative (ELLi) is a service club here at Brandeis where students are paired with staff (who work at Sodexo or in custodial services) to tutor them in English as their second language. No tutoring or foreign language experience is necessary, it is low time commitment, based on your schedule, and is a great way to get involved on campus and give back directly to the community!
