English as a Second Language Classes
DAYS Long Beach, in partnership with Long Beach Immigrant Right Coalition (LBIRC), provides adult English Language classes to approximately 15 participants twice a week for two hours.
A Long Beach Unified School District budget reduction all but eliminated ESL classes previously provided to adult English language learners. As a result, working parents and community members were unable to find English classes at convenient hours and locations in Long Beach.
Starting fall 2014, DAYS LB and LBIRC created classes in response to the needs identified in the Summer Parent Engagement classes. Through the DAYS LB and LBIRC collaboration, classes are offered for a nominal fee and are designed to meet the needs of our students in a stress-free, friendly environment.
