Info about the Community Kazakh Classes

The Community Learning Center (CLC) in a town in Kazakhstan provides job skills training and services to citizens in the town and the surrounding villages. The CLC, together with the community and local government, has determined that a Kazakh language course for adults will provide a great resource to the town and area. The town has many professionals, unemployed persons, and young people who speak only Russian. While it is possible for Russian speakers to secure employment, there are a growing number of jobs that require some knowledge of Kazakh. In the coming years, knowledge of the national language will be critical for job seekers. The town is also the only regional center in the Oblast that lacks a Kazakh language course for adults and professionals.

Therefore the CLC is requesting support from the Peace Corps Partnership Program to assist in the development of a Kazakh language course. The sessions will run 2 days a week in six month periods. Participants will be able to choose between a morning and afternoon session to better accommodate their families, lives and jobs.

The community and the local government are committed to the success of this project and have pledged their support. The community will provide a large room for the classes free of charge for one year, and the local government will pay for the teacher for as long as the classes run in the town.
