English Language Learning (ELL)

Hi all!

In addition to being our Director of Family Ministries, I also run our ELL program here at North Liberty United Methodist Church, where we offer English classes for French and Spanish Speakers. This year we have 25 people in our adult classes, and 20 children each week. We offer tutoring and homework help for the school age children, who often fall behind in school due to the the language barrier. We also have at least 10 children in our nursery rooms each week.

We are seeking your help as volunteers for this Spring.

We are in special need of:

Tutors for children.  We have a growing program for elementary-aged children that focuses on reading and homework help.  Our lead teacher will plan the activities and materials; all you have to do is come willing to help!

Nursery Workers: We have several young children who need someone to care and play with them while their parents are in the English classes. We have two nursery rooms: infant/toddler and preschool age.

Drivers: We are looking for adults who are capable of driving our church 15 passenger van to pick up ELL families in the North Liberty area. This is a 30 minute route. Volunteers can choose to drive the early shift (5:45-615pm) or late (8-8:30pm) or both.

The classes this year will be on Monday nights on January 25- April 18.  Class will be from 6:30p to 8:00p.

Service hours can be given.


I have created a Sign up Genius for you to sign up with. Our program is not possible without volunteers, and we hope that you prayerfully consider joining us for at least one night this Spring.

Yours In Christ,
Beth Botsford
