“I began volunteering at JVS to try and make a small difference in the lives of new English speakers. What unexpectedly happened over the next five years is that each of them made a huge difference in my life. Their drive, energy and determination motivated me every week to learn more and become a better teacher! And as an extra bonus- my fellow volunteers have been wonderful to get to know and work with.” – Judy Ehrlich, ESOL Classroom Assistant Volunteer, pictured teaching above
