English for Community Integration – Beginner – Syrian Family Support Office
September 13, 2021 - June 30, 2022
English for Community Integration beginner classes at the Syrian Family Support Office are geared primarily towards immigrant and refugee women from different ethnocultural backgrounds who are the primary caregivers of young children. The purpose of this program is to provide participants with an opportunity to improve their English and numeracy in a safe and welcoming social environment, while also increasing their social capital, improving their confidence and self-esteem, and facilitating community integration. While classes are open to all learners, we anticipate most learners to be Arabic speaking due to its location. This class will be designed specifically for beginner learners. Note: Due to COVID-19, it is likely programming will be delivered online until further public health guidance.
