ESL/Citizenship Classes

(504) 722-5692
English as a Second Language (ESL) and Citizenship classes serve hundreds of adult learners annually and operate in 6 sites throughout Orleans, Jefferson, and St. Tammany parishes. Both morning and evening classes are offered in order to accommodate all work schedules, and 100% of instructors are volunteers. Our ESL and Citizenship classes provide a key component for integrating into the American society for both immigrants who have recently arrived and those who have been in this country for several years.
