Many of Amani's program participants need to strengthen their conversational English skills. AWC's ESL Buddy Program pairs women volunteers with Amani clients for 1:1 conversation at Amani's facility at 3777 Church Street, Clarkston, GA 30021.

Your volunteer commitment is a one-hour conversation once or twice weekly focusing on your partner's identified goals and needs. No experience necessary, just a desire to meet a new neighbor and help her improve her conversational English.The ESL Buddy Program aims to empower program participants with the language skills needed for daily life, employment, and community engagement.

The lessons are taught to support ASA students’ professional development as they prepare to enter the job market, and even after they find employment. The lessons can also help women prepare for citizenship exams and job interviews. AWC volunteers use a variety of teaching methods to accommodate diverse backgrounds and learning styles. Lessons focus on practical language skills, including speaking, listening, reading, and writing, as well as cultural orientation to help women understand local customs and societal norms.
