The classes are for adult Spanish-speakers who are in need of fundamental computer literacy skills in order to grow their options and opportunities in a technology driven world. Because our students speak mostly Spanish, we are looking for someone who is bilingual in Spanish and English, both in speaking and writing.
Gardening: We’re looking for a person who loves to garden! Can you be a champion for our garden plot on Grandville Ave and the garden boxes here at Roosevelt Park Ministries? To start with, this would take daily work to get things weeded and planted but would become less work over time. We would love to see the flowers, fruits, vegetables, and herbs put to use in our area!
