ESL Classes for Refugees and Immigrants

UMR partnered with the Muslim American Society DC to assist the newly arrived immigrant and refugee families to resettle in the DC/Maryland/Virginia area. UMR provided a free educational service to new immigrants and refugees to assist them in attaining employment and live in dignity.

UMR conducted a 12-week course to provide English as a Second Language class and hosted regular assessments of student progress in achieving goals of English language proficiency. UMR also incorporated American cultural activities to help with resettlement, including social events and field trips. UMR conducted a workshop on job search, application, resume building, cover letter writing, interviewing, and hosted on a bi-annual basis job fairs that new immigrants and refugees can meet with potential employers.
