We Welcome to Foster Understanding
** NEW VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY **
ASU/WTAP Learn English Now Facilitators . . . Do you or someone you know want to help teach English to refugees (virtually)? All teaching will take place on-line. And you need not speak another language.
The Welcome to America Project (WTAP) and Arizona State University (ASU) are piloting an Arizona-focused partnership under ASU’s Education for Humanity initiative. Anyone 18+ can volunteer, not just ASU students and not just AZ residents. E4H works globally, in collaboration with on-the-ground partners, to improve access to education for refugees through provision of a variety of on-line programs ranging from English language training to entrepreneurship to academic coursework. WTAP and E4H will offer a blended learning model that combines digital learning tools with in-person (virtual) support through our many volunteers. The initial objective of our program is to support the current English-language learning efforts in the refugee and refugee resettlement community. Our approach is designed to be inclusive; refugees, resettlement agencies, ethnic community based organizations, faith-based entities, language-learning organizations, schools, etc. are all eligible to enroll participants as a supplement to existing programs or independent of such programs. We strongly believe that everything we can do to accelerate language skills will ultimately enhance refugee integration and success.
To learn more about the program and the role of volunteer facilitators, please email your name and phone number to email@example.com. We are all a part of the welcome. Let’s help refugees to talk about it.
