View a few picture-perfect moments from YFAB’s Sip ‘n Speak breakfast event on Friday, November 17th at the Rothman Rink Winter Cabin!
YFAB guests learned about our mission, volunteer opportunities, and met some of our amazing English Language Learners along with other literacy allies in our region during fast-paced conversation circles.
Our learners were beyond grateful at the opportunity to practice their speaking skills. If you’re interested in being part of the conversation, consider joining YFAB as an English Conversation Partner, or select from the many volunteer roles available to YFAB members.
