Student Insights: Job Promotion

Alex Acosta: In 2001 he began taking English classes with Intercambio Uniting Communities, and from 2004 until present he has worked with the same Intercambio teacher who comes to his home once a week. His family and his teacher’s family are like one big family now, and Alex has used his improved English to become a true community leader. He serves on the City of Longmont Housing and Human Services Advisory Board and the Longmont Police Review Panel.

Sandra Manzo: Because of Intercambio, Sandra became more confidant to find a job and recently got hired to work with Mental Health Partners.  Sandra is no longer afraid and feels more comfortable speaking to people in English.

Edith Gonzales: I want to take the opportunity to thank Intercambio, because thanks to my improved English I have been offered a position as Consumer Safety Officer with the FDA in Denver.

Carmen Jaime: Thanks to Intercambio I have gotten various jobs for myself. My communication in English has improved a lot. …I am the member of the board of directors at my daughter’s school.
