English as a Second Language

In 1945 The Connection began an English as a Second Language program to serve the influx of newcomers to our country after WWII. The need for this program is as significant now as it was 75 years ago. Today, Connection volunteers are teaching English and providing valuable support services to students from 22 different countries.
