Maile Molin’s unique school ENGLISH @ WORK aims to break the cycle of poverty by teaching language in the workplace to those with limited English proficiency. Molin taught her first class to the cooks, busboys and dishwashers she worked with while waiting tables at a restaurant after noting their difficulty getting to the language classes they needed. Since then, her organization has expanded. Businesses who host ENGLISH @ WORK classes see improvements in employee safety awareness and customer service, as well as increased employee loyalty.
