Teach ESL at La Playa
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.

Teach ESL at the Laguna Day Worker Center
We are currently looking for volunteer ESL teachers at the LDWC. Classes in conversational English, as well as in basic reading and writing skills, are of immense benefit to many of the workers at our site. This is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community by making a tangible difference in peoples' lives.
We value consistency, and teachers will be asked to teach one Saturday per month from 9-10:30. ESL certification is strongly preferred.
If you are interested in volunteering as an ESL instructor at the LDWC, please fill out our intake form.
