Gathering Hope is a program that responds to the requests of the local Hispanic community for English language skills, basic computer skills, and a children’s literacy program. Frazer Mennonite Church hosts the program. Twenty adult students from Honduras, Mexico, and Ecuador - meet bi weekly for 12 weeks to study English language with a certified ESL instructor and computer skills through cognitive practical experiences. Students practice speaking English with English speaking mentors who provide conversation in daily life situations. Children partake in a literacy program while their parents are in class.
