Our Summer ESL Team

Meet our ESL team at The Open Arms Studio. This is Stephen, Mary and Vinayika working with Maria (far left) and Sam (far right), who are both long-time stitchers on the Open Arms designer team. These volunteers dedicated a lot of time to creating and facilitating an assessment to better place refugee staff into ESL classes so they can increase their proficiency and confidence. 

We want to give our sincerest thanks to all our volunteers. Your commitment to the success of our refugee staff is crucial in helping us to create opportunities for a livelihood marked by dignity and self-sufficiency.
