Volunteer as an English as a Second Language Mentor
What is Poudre River Public Library's ESL Mentoring Service?

ESL Mentoring is a learner-driven service that provides free mentoring to intermediate adult ESL (English as a Second Language) learners who want to improve their reading, writing, speaking, listening, and grammar skills. Learners receive one-on-one project-based support from volunteer mentors to encourage literacy development and life skills in our community. Our mentors help connect learners to the community through partnerships, collaboration, and resource navigation based on learner goals.

Now accepting applications for ESL Mentor training! Next training is planned for mid-late March 2021. Apply now to reserve a spot!
