South County Crosscultural Council



"What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead."

(Nelson Mandela, 1918-2013)

Volunteer in our ESL program


“Building my students' confidence by increasing their English language skills continues to be very rewarding!” L. Cohen

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

ESL - English as a second language learners represent a wide diversity of cultural backgrounds and language skills, but they all have two things in common: the need for better language skills and the need for friendship. Some of the benefits that English can provide for your students are English-speaking friendships, better job opportunities, easier shopping, less stress when getting medical care, and support for their children’s academic careers. No prior teaching experience is necessary. We have been offering our ESL program since 1999. Our orientation, training manuals, daily lesson plans, and faculty will support you and your students so you have a fulfilling experience.
