Mission & objective

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 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.

All ESL classes and volunteer trainings will be online. There will not be any in-person meetings.


Summer 2021 trimester dates: June 7 – August 19, 2021

All classes are held from 8:00 to 10:00 pm Pacific Time via Zoom. There is a mandatory team meeting from 7:45 to 8:00 pm each week on your volunteer day.
