Our ESL Program integrates relevant teaching practices in grammar, writing, listening-speaking, and reading in an inclusive environment that develops students’ language as well as the cultural awareness that they will need to thrive. Through the lens of empowering the whole person, the ESL program complements the wraparound services Canal Alliance provides so that very low-income, adult immigrants can improve their access to education, employment and entrepreneurial opportunities to ultimately get on the pathway out of poverty. Canal Alliance’s ESL Program prepares Latino immigrants to feel empowered, supported and motivated to lift barriers to their success through a communicative language framework alongside strengths-based learning.

Canal Alliance offers 15-week sessions during the mornings and evenings at Canal Alliance and Pickleweed Community Center in San Rafael. Mandatory orientations and training must be completed.
