Help Adults Learn to Speak Better English - Coordinate an ESL Conversation Club!

There are many adult English language learners in our community who wish to learn to speak better English. Starting in January 2012, Santa Clara City Library will host a weekly ESL Conversation Club. The Library is looking for a dynamic volunteer with knowledge of English as a Second Language and the ability to recruit and motivate volunteers to lead this new program.

In consultation with library staff, the ESL Conversation Club Coordinator will:

- Recruit, orient and lead a team of Volunteer Conversation Partners
- Select curriculum materials for use by volunteers in the ESL Conversation Club
- Collect data and create reports for program evaluation

This is an exciting opportunity to organize and coordinate a program that will help many adults in our community gain the confidence they need to communicate with others in English in their everyday lives.

If you are interested, please call Charity Trajico, Volunteer Coordinator for the Library at (408) 615-2919 or send her email at
