    St. Matthew's Episcopal Church provides a free ESOL program on Monday evenings. There is no religious instruction or registration required. They are simply a group of citizens willing to help others; they need additional volunteers to assist with language instruction and/or assist bilingual children with homework. You do not need to know another language to help. ESOL meets at 6:45 Monday nights, and runs until 8:15. You do not have to come every week-- once or twice a month is fine. Training and materials are provided-- you simply have to have a heart to help. You'll find it a very rewarding experience. Help us to welcome the stranger in our midst.

    For more information, you can contact me here or our Director, Roz Gann at rrgann@gmail.com. St. Matthew's is located at 201 E. Frederick Drive, Sterling, VA 20164
