ELPW’s most critical needs in 2013/2014 are unrestricted funds to maintain current programming and build administrative infrastructure. Once ELPW is financially stabilized, we will seek contributions to expand with these services and programs:
DAYTIME ECO CLASSES for students and volunteers whose schedules prevent them from attending evening classes.
SPANISH LITERACY FOR SPANISH GED: ELPW once offered Spanish literacy for Latino adults and looks forward to resuming this program. We will coordinate with Milwaukee agencies that offer Spanish GED classes so that ELPW's literacy students have a path to GED instruction. We will offer training to other institutions that wish to start literacy programs. Our approach can be adapted to teach non-literate adults with first languages other than Spanish.
In maturing immigrant neighborhoods, ACADEMIC ENGLISH OUTREACH will close the gap between our Adult ECO and Children’s Program. Tutors will instruct teenagers and young adults in academic English so that they succeed in higher education.
PARTNERS IN CITIZENSHIP: Tutors will help immigrants with English while both learn the civics material.
FAMILY LITERACY THROUGH CHILDREN’S LITERATURE: Parents will interact with fluent English speakers as they learn how to give their babies a literacy foundation.
