Join Hands ESL


Join Hands ESL was founded in 1990 to serve underprivileged children in East St. Louis. Initially focused solely on the children of East St. Louis through our Girls Club and Boys Club, but recognizing that the best way to help the children is to help their mothers, in 2004 the mission of Join Hands ESL expanded to include a focus on women and their children in our Family Mentoring Program. In 2006, Join Hands ESL took the next step with our Alternative Education Program - realizing that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. Also in 2006, Join Hands joined with Griffin Center in East St. Louis to provide mentors to teens in the "Welfare to Work" Teen mentoring program which focuses on helping teens attain their education and career goals.
