LINC Assistance and Readiness Class (LARC)

Not ready for a traditional LINC class? Need additional support while learning English? The LINC Assistance and Readiness Classes (LARC) are a trauma-informed program for clients who need additional support and more flexibility than a conventional LINC class would provide. The goal for clients in the LINC Assistance and Readiness Classes is be able to transition into the regular LINC program.

There are morning and afternoon LARC classes. Due to COVID-19, classes are currently being held online.

Morning Classes
Monday – Thursday: 10 am – 12 pm

Afternoon Classes
Mondays & Wednesdays: 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
Fridays: 10 am – 12 pm
