education 2Education Services provides English language and other skills training to help clients become economically self-sufficient.  Education programs include:

  • ESL training for refugees
  • GED study
  • Microbusiness training for women 50 years of age +
  • Citizenship classes for refugees 60 years of age +

The goal of ESL classes is to help clients become proficient in the English language, so they can acquire gainful employment and attain economic independence. The better English an individual have the higher the salary range.

The GED class helps people prepare to take the exam. The class covers math, science, reading, writing and social studies. Catholic Charities pays the GED exam costs for clients that successfully complete the class.

Getting Back on Our Feet

The Microbusiness training program, “Getting Back on Our Feet,” is a five-week course for women 50 years of age and older. The program creates the opportunity for women to become listed, licensed, or registered childcare providers with the State of Texas and to establish their own home childcare business, or who seek employment in a child care facility. The goal is for the participants to become economically self-sufficient.

Older Refugees

The Older Refugees program provides Citizenship classes for refugees 60 years of age and older. Participants in the program receive instruction that covers all required knowledge to pass the USCIS citizenship tests. In addition, the Education Services team works with our Immigration and Legal Services team to help our older refugees fill out and submit applications for citizenship.
