About Us

Founded in 1992, The Immigrant Learning Center, Inc. (ILC) is a year-round, not-for-profit adult education center located in Malden, Massachusetts, six miles north of Boston. Its mission is to give immigrants a voice in three ways: provide free English classes to immigrant and refugee adults in Eastern Massachusetts, educate the public on the ways that immigrants are assets to America, and support research that demonstrates the economic and social benefits of immigration.

The ILC serves more than 900 students each year with six levels of intensive English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes. By improving their English skills, ILC students achieve goals such as finding a job, entering college, starting a business, becoming a U.S. citizen and more. To help students achieve their goals, The ILC also offers specialty classes such as citizenship exam preparation, computer literacy, family literacy (parenting-related English lessons), a theater class where students write and perform plays about their immigrant experiences and job and education counseling.

The ILC further supports immigrants through its Public Education Institute, which informs Americans about the economic and social contributions of immigrants in our society. The Institute uses a research-based approach to create reports, articles, presentations and conferences for researchers, educators, policy makers, media and the general public. In addition, the Institute for Immigration Research, a joint venture with George Mason University, conducts research on immigrants' economic contributions.
