The Need

English In Action is working to serve more people

Language barrier is a significant issue

The vitality of our community depends on our ability to communicate effectively with each other. In survey after survey, our students report that the language barrier is among the most significant obstacles they face in the Roaring Fork Valley. Overwhelmingly, they want to learn more English. When adults improve their English language skills, it is not only they who benefit, but their children too. Studies show that the educational attainment of children is closely linked to that of their parents.

Help is Needed

While the number of adult students English In Action serves has increased steadily year after year, the demand for our programs has remained high. While many students wait for more than a year for an individual tutor, they are eager to get started when one becomes available. English In Action is addressing this continued demand by expanding our group tutoring offerings and providing participants options for enrolling in multiple programs within our organization. But there is more work to be done! Please consider volunteering as a tutor or donating to support our programs.
