Community Outreach Program Through English

Ouachita's Community Outreach Program through English (COPE) links certified OBU students to English language learning within the community. 

OBU volunteers gain valuable insight into other cultures while assisting those who are struggling with the English language. Ouachita students and their community partners meet for English lessons weekly using material provided by the Elrod Center and the Grant Center for International Education's English as Second Language program. Information on American citizenship also is included in the program on demand.

The Elrod Center partners with the Arkansas Baptist State Convention's Missions Leadership Team and the OBU Grant Center for International Education's English as a Second Language Program to provide training workshops for tutors as well as lesson material.
