We offer preschool classes (ages 3-4) during our adult ESL sessions for the children of both our refugee students and volunteers in order to help prepare them for kindergarten in American schools. We teach fine and gross motor skills, social skills, pre-reading and math skills, and of course, the gospel of Christ! If you’d like to help in the preschool class, please fill out the volunteer application. Classes are located in Garland, TX.
While most refugees live at apartment complexes with swimming pools, most of them do not know how to swim. It is extremely important to teach children how to swim for their safety. We teach over 100 children swim lessons each summer, and the kids love it!
Many refugee youth come to the US unprepared for the public school system. They have often suffered from a lack of formal education as they have fled from their home countries and are, therefore, at a significant disadvantage academically. We offer a summer-long, intensive English program to help these students get prepared for the school year.
In addition to our programs, we have dedicated staff who help refugee children and families access additional support provided by school districts, healthcare systems, and social services.
