Lingua Franca Academy is a  company that offers Spanish and English classes to adults and businesses using a  conversational method of teaching. Rather than listen to a lecture, students speak during 50% or more of the class time and are able to develop linguistic agility by using the language immediately with the help of their instructor.

 Community Health Workers Initiative of Sonoma County


Call (707) 481-7965 for details.

"A Community Health Worker (CHW) is a frontline public health worker who is a trusted member of and/or has an unusually close understanding of the community served. This trusting relationship enables the CHW to serve as a liaison/link/intermediary between health/social services and the community to facilitate access to services and improve the quality and cultural competence of service delivery.
 A CHW also builds individual and community capacity by increasing health knowledge and self-sufficiency through a range of activities such as outreach, community education, informal counseling, social support and advocacy."
