What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The ESLC serves those who cannot access traditional English language programs due to a variety of barriers such as disability, lack of transportation, irregular work schedules, and childcare needs. Offering free English as a Second Language programs in the community, we enable low-income adults to improve their proficiency in English and provide these families with the tools necessary to successfully integrate in Utah and build bridges out of poverty. Each year we bring together an average of 1,000 adult English language learners, from more than 85 different countries, with over 120 trained and mentored community volunteers.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

English Classes

The ESLC strongly believes in two-way mutual integration, which places emphasis on the efforts of the receiving community and incoming community members throughout the integration process.

To support the notion of two-way mutual integration, the ESLC focuses on providing educational opportunities for both the receiving and incoming community. The receiving community can learn with us by attending workshops, becoming a volunteer, or even participating in a community book club. In the context of the ESLC, incoming community members are adult English language learners. The ESLC specializes in teaching English language and civics for adults with limited and interrupted formal education. We create a safe-space for everyone to learn and grow together in order to reach our vision of a community where all voices are celebrated.
