El Sol offers ESL classes during the day plus three nights per week. The day classes help develop conversational skills while the night classes teach written and spoken English.
Basic literacy in their native language is taught to workers on Thursday and Friday nights from 7 to 9 p.m. to help prepare them to learn English and other subjects.
Several vocational workshops help improve the occupational skills of El Sol’s workers. Workshops include landscaping, painting, housekeeping and sewing.
El Sol’s computer lab is open daily, and two nights per week computer classes are offered to improve basic computer skills.
