Volunteers with the English as a New Language Preschool have a unique opportunity to work with a diverse group of children that come from many different countries and cultures. As their parents learn English at the RCLC, the children learn as well through fun, literacy-based programming targeted to children ages 3-5. 

As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to:

  • Participate in music and storytime 
  • Stretch children's creativity through imaginative play
  • Expose children to art activities
  • Assist with classroom management
  • Develop strong relationships and a multi-cultural perspective

We welcome all volunteers, including students, CBL classes, community members, and work-study students!

  • Lead students through real literacy lessons aligned with Indiana State Standards
  • Develop strong relationships in a one-on-one or small group setting
  • Help struggling students acheive their goals
  • Show students that reading and writing can be fun
