The Family Resource Center at Neighborhood House High Point will begin offering a Ready to Work ESL program to help people improve their English skills, find a job, attend college or a training program.

The program is free and participants will have access to a case manager who will be available to help connect them with support services to help overcome barriers to employment they might be facing.

Ready to Work begins April 2, and classes will be taught by an instructor from Literacy Source. The hours are from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Monday-Thursday at Neighborhood House High Point, 6400 Sylvan Way SW, in West Seattle.

A maximum of 20 students will be enrolled. To enroll, please contact Abdi Ismail, 206-588-4900 ext. 3010 at the Family Resource Center, or stop by to see him.

The Family Resource Center is also seeking volunteers to help support the program as classroom assistants. Volunteers help support students one-on-one or in small groups and can sign up to come in as often or as little as they’d like.

Volunteers will be required to go through a brief volunteer orientation for Neighborhood House as well as a more in-depth training through Literacy Source. For more information, please contact Megan Demeroutis, megand@nhwa.org.
