- Golf outings, especially at exclusive local clubs
- Hotel stays and spa treatments

Congratulations to EAL tutoring learner alumnus Behrouz on achieving his goal of U.S. Citizenship. His volunteer tutor Melissa continued to work with him after leaving the program, and tells us
"I started with Behrouz as a tutor in July 2016. His goals that we worked toward with his English abilities were to get a full-time job, buy a house, and become a US citizen. He has achieved all three of his goals and has come a long way with his skills and confidence."
"I am so proud of him and so privileged to be part of his journey and the mission of English at Large. To see someone work so hard and achieve something that means so much to him is priceless."
Thank you Melissa for your volunteer service, and for sharing this inspiring story! ... See MoreSee Less
