MCOP ESL Program in the News

WMTV NBC 15 in Madison recently highlighted the accomplishments of students working with MCOP volunteer tutor coordinator, Kathy Chase, at Cottonwood Dairy in Wiota. 

With the support of sheriffs and police chiefs from Iowa, Grant, Lafayette and Richland Counties, the MultiCultural Outreach Program is issuing identification cards to our Hispanic friends which establish their ties to the local community.  The ID cards, which are FREE, include the name, address, phone and a photo of the card holder as well as the name, address and phone of their employer or another local person such as a pastor.

It is important to understand that these cards are not government-issued driver's licenses.   

Card holders can still expect to get a ticket and be required to pay a fine for a minor traffic violation, such as a taillight out or driving without a license.  But the police officer will not be required to take them to jail if they show the ID card to prove they live and work in the community. 

To obtain an ID card, our Hispanic friends must have this form signed by their employer, allowing us to list his/her contact information on the card.   The attached letter will explain the value of the program to employers or other potential contact person.

Persons seeking ID cards MUST bring signed forms.

Children's Books & Educational Materials


Looking ahead to summer 2018, we're seeking reading material (books or magazines) for school aged children, as well as basic school supplies, to distribute to families. Children, especially those living on farms without transportation to summer school or library programs, struggle to maintain English literacy skills. Our hope is that we can put together bags of reading material and learning packets to maintain skill levels and encourage summer growth.
