BENEFITING: CAMBODIAN ASSOCIATION OF ILLINOIS

EVENT DATE: Jan 01, 2011

THE STORY:

OUR GOAL IS TO RAISE MONEY TO BUY OUR STUDENTS BUS PASSES. BECAUSE JUMP START IS ALSO AN EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM, A MAJORITY OF OUR STUDENTS DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO TRAVEL TO CLASSES EVEN THOUGH THERE IS A DEMAND FOR IT. PLEASE HELP US REACH OUR GOAL AND HELP OUR STUDENTS BECOME INDEPENDENT INDIVIDUALS.

The Jump Start ESL Program is part of the Cambodian Association's Employment Program. Jump Start provides individuals with a free 11-week ESL course. The classes are taught by a certified teacher from Literacy Chicago, a social worker and nurse educator from CAI, and several community volunteers, including an Immigrants and Refugee AmeriCorps volunteer. Our two hour classes are divided into a one hour ESL class which incorporates civic learning and career counseling and another one hour course on financial skills workshops, basic computer skills training, health and diabetes workshops, and wellness workshops. Listed below is a typical Jump Start schedule:

Monday
9:30 AM - 10:30 AM ESL Course
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM Financial Skills Workshop
Tuesday
9:30 AM - 10:30 AM ESL Course
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM Computer Class
Wednesday
9:30 AM - 10:30 AM ESL Course
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM Health Care and Diabetes Workshop
