Industry Education
Occupation ESL Adult Education
Location Denver, CO, United States
Introduction The Colorado Refugee ESL In-Home Tutoring Program serves refugee women from around the world. We work in the Denver Metro area. Many women who resettle through the UN's refugee program are unable to attend classes for English and acculturation, so a dedicated team of volunteers goes into the community to take the English to the students--at home! We have been doing this work for over twenty years.
