I see that you live in the United States so my first suggestion is to contact the Esperanto-association in your own country. Maybe you live in or near a big city which has an own Esperanto-group.
Here is the link: http://www.esperanto-usa.org/
Esperanto is most popular in Europe (for example Germany or France) and in Brasil and China.
You should first lean the language via lernu.net and then you have the possibility to use the hospitality - network for Esperanto - speakers called "Pasporta Servo".
Bonan sukseson = good luck!
