Most refugees from Burma living in Worcester first arrived with little or no English skills, and they are eager to learn the language for better assimilation and job opportunities. WRAP provides a familiar and comfortable place for families to come to together and attend English classes taught by volunteers. Our classes range from preliterate (those who are illiterate in their own language) to intermediate.
It is a challenge for many kids to learn lessons in a new language, especially when their parents have limited English skills to help with their homework or reading assignments. Our volunteers make a big difference by offering homework help every Mondays and Thursdays from 6-7:30pm
fun for the kids
At WRAP, we make sure that parents can leave their children in trusted hands while they attend English classes. Our volunteers can be found carrying a baby, playing duck duck goose, making arts and crafts, playing board games, kicking a soccer ball around, shooting hoops, jumping ropes, and really, anything you can think of. Come join the fun!
