English as a Second Language (ESOL)
Federal agency volunteers visit High School ESOL classes to encourage students to learn English. The ESOL speakers are federal employees who immigrated to the US and had to go through the process of learning English and assimilating to American culture while still maintaining their identity and culture. Volunteers recount their own experiences in learning English as a second language and emphasize how doing so contributed to their personal and professional success.
