English as a second or third language for students in Fontaine can be a powerful tool. One of the world's most common languages, English can open more doors to future jobs, connections, and schools in Haiti.
Volunteers spend time teaching English to St. Gabriel's students during their stay.
Outside of classes, students also actively practice English with volunteers. By the end of a volunteer's experience, students at St. Gabriel's not only practiced English but shared the language of Creole with our volunteers.
This sharing of languages forms great connections and strengthens steps to a better education.
