Story Highlights

If you would like to help refugees in the Fort Worth area practice their English skills, come to an introductory training this Thursday evening, March 22 at the diocesan offices from 6 to 8 pm.

A member of the Refugee Services of Texas organization will give some information on volunteering to help their clients in this way. Eleanor Brockman, a current teacher of English as a Second Language at Tarrant County College’s south campus, and the Rev. Jordan Haynie-Ware, a former ESL instructor with the Peace Corps, will provide tips and resources for how to support people in learning English.

You don’t need special skills – you already have the most important skill for this task if you speak English. Attend the training to see whether this type of volunteering is a good fit for you. If you’re unable to attend but are interested in this option, contact Deacon Tracie Middleton in the diocesan office.
