HACS ESL program uses Service Learners as Teacher's Assistants and Tutors to help our students gain confidence and practice their English skills, both written and orally.
Service Learners and community volunteers will have the opportunity to get to know adults from other cultures, build meaningful relationships as a teacher and mentor, and gain valuable intercultural communication skills.
Respecting the dignity and potential of each human person, Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New Orleans collaborates with the wider community to serve those in need. We offer life-giving programs, advocate for the voiceless, and empower the poor and vulnerable to foster a more just society.
