The mission of Enrich ELL is to promote opportunities through English literacy, to foster cross-cultural understanding, and to build lasting relationships between UNC students and members of the community.
This program provides university students the opportunity to serve the specific needs of adult English-language learners. Our objectives are to:
1) Teach English skills based on the individual needs of each participant
2) Provide childcare, tutoring, and mentoring for the participant’s children during the classes
3) Serve as a valuable resource for the well-being of these families and their integration into the Chapel Hill/Carrboro community
In order to fulfill our goals and objectives, we hold year-round classes two times a week for an hour at Carrboro Elementary School (400 Shelton St, Carrboro NC) on Mondays and Hargraves Community Center (216 N Roberson St, Chapel Hill NC) on Wednesdays. We select our volunteers through an application process and hold training sessions for the volunteers throughout the year. Volunteers include undergraduate and graduate students at UNC as well as a few community members. An executive board heads the program with frequent input from volunteers and participants.
Carpool is provided to UNC students to and from campus from the Davis Library ATM’s starting at 6:30 PM.
