The Office of New Americans (ONA) Neighborhood Based Opportunity Center is a collection of exciting new programs at Catholic Charities Community Services that is helping us to realize our goal of becoming the immigration center of Dutchess County.

Volunteer Conversation Starter:  Our new ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) students are looking for good conversationalists to facilitate practice conversations in English. 

Volunteers can create their own hours so long as the schedule is consistent.  The minimum commitment is 2 hours/week ongoing.  

We will offer space at Catholic Charities Community Services (CCCS) in Poughkeepsie to host the groups or another location could be considered upon approval by CCCS. 

The volunteer must have good communication, interpersonal, leadership and organizational skills.
