Did You Know?

April 5, 2013

  • There are 150,000 people living in Central Texas who don’t speak English well.
  • Over 95% of them cannot access traditional English classes.
  • Limited English puts people at a higher risk of getting stuck in entry-level jobs, receiving poor quality health care, and even dying on the job.

ENGLISH @ WORK disrupts the cycle of poverty by bringing critical language classes to the workplace. Check out this video to see how we do it:



The ENGLISH @ WORK program is hiring a full-time AmeriCorps member to work in our classes and provide student support from August 2014 to August 15th. If you are a Spanish speaker who is interested in social justice and immigrant/refugee communities, this could be the job for you!
