Graphic Designer Roles Description

Organization Overview:
For over 27 years, Helping Link/Một Dấu Nối has helped many Vietnamese integrate into American society through our ESL, computer, and citizenship programs as well as information and referral services. The challenges of moving to a new continent and learning a new culture are immense and, at times, overwhelming. Helping Link is here to pay forward the help many of us received so that families remain intergenerational, connected, and united. This source of support
and knowledge in a safe environment allowed many of Helping Link’s clients to successfully achieve their goals to improve their English skills, become U.S. citizens, and find opportunities to grow and thrive.

We seek caring community members and professionals in search of culturally enriching relationships, passionate about creating space for mutual exchange and engagement. Join Us!
