Our ESL classes were created at the direct request of survivors. These classes are imperative for those who have been trafficked from outside of the country and have limited knowledge of the English language.
Without language skills, survivors of sex trafficking remain extremely vulnerable. Improving their command of the English language can help survivors find better and more permanent employment options, connect them more deeply with their community, and allow them to become more independent in all aspects of their lives.
These classes build self-esteem and provide an outlet for survivors to express themselves and pursue interests in a safe environment.
