English Language Learners
In keeping with our Vincentian mission, collaboration with agencies serving immigrant, refugee and migrant families are embraced along with P-12 partnerships in serving English language learners in the Western New York area.
In collaboration with Catholic Charities, we developed the Hospitality and Tourism Training Institute. Through an intensive eight-week training and internship program, we prepare refugees for success in the hospitality industry.
English Language Learners (ELL) will be able to:
- Advocate for their needs and the needs of their family within governmental agencies, business, school and social environments
- Understand spoken English, American sayings, and colloquial language
- Compose simple letters and complete applications
