GoTen Ministries

GoTEN Ministries focuses on sharing the Gospel with legally resettled refugees in the valley.

English Class Volunteer

Come alongside a refugee as they seek to learn the English language. Twice a week, refugees come to one of GoTEN's Ministry Centers (3 locations around the valley) to study English through Rosetta Stone. As a volunteer, you will sit beside and assist them with their understanding. GoTEN's intention is for volunteers to truly engage with and begin relationships with the refugees they are partnered with and support them in their growth. No English or Teaching training is required.

Refugee Tutoring Volunteer

Come alongside a refugee family by assisting their children with homework in GoTEN’s after-school program. Most parents of refugee children do not speak English and do not have the capacity to help their children with homework. GoTEN staff invite children from Canyon Pointe Apartments to attend an after-school program where volunteers help children in grades 1-8 with homework. Volunteers must pass a background check. No additional training is required.
