Hopelink's English for Work goes online

Sunday, November 29, 2020

Do you know people who would benefit from improved English skills in order to find work, but cannot attend a class due to COVID restrictions?

In response to this situation, Hopelink will continue to provide free English for Work classes online.

About English for Work Online

This free ONLINE course is designed to help immigrants and refugees who speak some English to improve their language skills while they prepare for work. 

 Students develop their speaking, listening, reading, writing, and technology skills; receive one-on-one advising; and participate in remote mock interviews conducted by local employers. 

Every quarter, many of our students find jobs. Employers know about us, and frequently make us aware of job openings. In addition, Hopelink volunteers often help to connect students with employers.
