Centro de Educación de Trabajadores (ESL, ESOL, educacion, english)

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: June 19, 2014, 11:21 PM

Description

The Centro offers classes in English (ESL, ESOL), basic computer skills, and preparation for the citizenship exam. An all-volunteer teaching and administrative staff makes classes available at very low cost. Along with classes in Spanish and Mandarin, the Centro fosters a friendly community environment that promotes cross-cultural understanding and support. On Tuesday evenings we host an Intercambio. We also provide free legal advice for immigrants. Once founded by and for Latin American newcomers, we welcome immigrants from all over the world, serve and benefit from our diverse community. Please note, email is the best way to contact us.

At the Centro, decisions are made by a volunteer Coordinating Committee that meets monthly to discuss programming and budget issues, and to plan upcoming classes and special events.

We are located at Hartley House, a Community Center and Settlement House, serving the Clinton and Hell's Kitchen neighborhoods since 1897.

Many volunteers have found a real sense of community at the Centro, have stayed for many years, and bring their friends, family and coworkers to volunteer or take classes here.

Please note that email is the best way to contact us: info@centronyc.org.

Thank you !
