Open Doors to New Opportunities this New Year With the English Empowerment Center

Social4Good’s Goal:  Provide Scholarships to 40 Adult English-Language Learners Participating in the English Empowerment Center’s Educational Programs and Help Open Doors to Opportunity!  

Deadline to Donate: January 31, 2023 

Did You Know...

  • One in five U.S. adults have low literacy skills and that non-U.S.-born adults comprise 34% of the U.S. population with low literacy skills? 
  • 39% of Fairfax County residents speak a language other than English at home and 14% of Fairfax County residents struggle with the English language? In Fairfax County, where the cost of living is high and employers demand English language proficiency, literacy is critical to economic self-sufficiency.

You can help deliver the gift of literacy this new year.

Donate to S4G’s January project to support the English Empowerment Center (EEC). The English Empowerment Center is a nonprofit organization that provides adult learners with language building programs and classes. To contribute, S4G members are not only making financial donations, but also personally delivering classroom binders to local students in the community. 

 

We are Thankful for Your Donations! 

Financial Donation can be made via Grapevine through January 31st. 100% of your donation will be sent to the English Empowerment Center to support local students and EEC’s ongoing programs in our community. Click here to donate or use the following QR Code.
