ESL & Family Literacy Classes
In addition to the Adult ESL classes the YWCA Elgin annually enrolls 40 ESL families in the Family Literacy program, which serves to “empower the parent to grow the child.” During the regular school year, (Sept – May), adult ESL students attend ESL class while their children attend ESL preschool. On Fridays, the parent and child join together for special interactive activities. The Family Literacy Program at the YWCA Elgin provides programming in accordance with the best-practice of the NCFL (National Center for Family Literacy). We follow the four component model, which has a proven record of breaking the cycle of poverty and illiteracy, including: Adult Education (ESL Classes), Early Childhood Education (ESL Preschool), ESL Parenting Classes, and Parent and Child Together (PACT) Activities.
