The English Language Acquisition for Adults (ELAA) program trains volunteers to provide student-centered, communicative English language instruction at public libraries, schools, churches and community centers throughout Tucson. The program currently provides more than 40 classes in 20 locations. Click here for current schedule.

Interested in providing English instruction at your location?

We offer three options for partnering:

Become a Full Partnership Site – Become a sustained, multi-level class location (minimum 2 year commitment and annual coordination fee). Full partnership sites receive a high level of coordination from Literacy Connects program staff and are given priority for teacher placements.   Click here for more information and application.

Become a Provisional Site – Apply to have one of our trained, volunteer teachers work with a pre-identified small group of students on a provisional basis (10 student minimum; contingent on tutor availability). A good option for schools and other organizations that cannot commit to being a sustained class location from year-to-year.  Click here for more information and application.

Provide your own classes – Have staff or volunteers from your organization attend an ELAA tutor training in order to provide classes or small group instruction on your own ($100 training fee per person). Click here to attend an orientation and apply.
