The Volunteer Center runs the Language Connection Program through the Malibu Community Labor Exchange. The organization provides a community recognized location where day laborers can meet to search for local jobs and works to prepare those present for future work. The Malibu Labor Exchange is less than a mile from campus.
The Language Connection Program will give you the opportunity to teach basic conversational English to the day laborers at the Malibu Labor Exchange. This is a great opportunity to serve one of the most underrepresented populations in this country by equipping them with the necessary skills and knowledge to better their situations and that of their families.
You will also get a better understanding of the daily struggles of immigrant workers while building relationships with the people you will serve.
It is recommended that participants attend at least four Saturday teaching sessions per semester.
