The LDS Humanitarian Center

DSC05338The Humanitarian Center was established in 1991 to prepare humanitarian supplies for worldwide distribution, while providing job skill training for refugees and immigrants. At any given time, over 100 associates are enrolled in the Humanitarian Center, with the long-term goal of joining the workforce and becoming self-reliant. Half the day the associates develop job skills, while the other half they attend English classes. The English Skills Learning Center supports these classes by holding 12-14 small group classes a day, Monday through Friday. Every week, nearly 35 ESLC volunteers facilitate these small learning groups, giving associates more personalized English instruction. Small group classes cover a variety of topics, including Emerging and Beginning Literacy, Driving and Citizenship.


This partnership is in conjunction with Deseret Industries, Refugee Services Office (within the Utah State Department of Workforce Services), Catholic Community Services, International Rescue Committee, Asian Association of Utah, and Granite Peaks Lifelong Learning Center.
