ECHO - A Community Resource for Teachers, Tutors, and Students

ECHO (Emergency and Community Health Outreach) is a local non-profit whose mission is to collaborate with diverse communities to deliver programs and services that help people be healthy, contribute, and succeed.

As a leader in multi-language health, safety, civic engagement and emergency readiness communication, ECHO bridges the gap for immigrants and refugees in Minnesota. Through close collaborations with health and safety experts, bilingual community leaders and talented spokespersons, ECHO crafts high quality programming for television and radio broadcast and phone, print, web, DVD and partner relay distribution.

The level of English is appropriate for advanced level or GED students, and portions of the programs could be adapted for use as listening activities with high intermediate level learners.
