Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services - Adult Education

Community Based Organization

Adult Education opens the road for adults learning English, pursuing secondary education, improving technology skills and seeking employment. Volunteers and staff members work closely with adults 18 years of age and older to help them achieve their personal goals.
Adult Basic Education - Students looking to further their education are welcome to study during the daytime or evenings with talented and patient volunteer tutors. Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services' (SFBFS) staff offer assessments to best determine a successful starting place for each student. Volunteers work at the student's pace to help him or her achieve their goals. SFBFS helps prepare adult learners for the High School Equivalency tests, GED and HiSET.
English as a Second Language - Adults wishing to improve their English, may attend free classes during the day or evening at our Family Services campus in Oak Park. Volunteers lead five different levels of ESL instruction, from introductory to advanced. SFBFS also offers a language lab with Rosetta Stone.
Citizenship - SFBFS now offers Citizenship classes. This ten week course meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 - 8 p.m. and helps students prepare for the Naturalization Test and interview.
Career Development - Students build resumes, perform job search, build additional technology skills, practice interview techniques and attend job fairs to improve their career prospects.
Technology - Adults who are new to technology or just looking for a refresher are invited to attend free classes such as Welcome to the World of Computers, Beyond Basics and Intro to Internet. Talented volunteers in our community lead classes in an effort to build students confidence and familiarity with technology. Classes are offered in English and Spanish and range from typing basics to Microsoft Excel.
