General English Classes

Using themes of Education and Goals, Jobs, Housing and Community, Financial Literacy, Health and Wellness, and Civics, The Welcome Project introduces students to community resources, the nuances of a new culture, and opportunities to engage in the civic life of the city. We offer 4 different English levels for adult English language learners and each class meets two days per week.

Computer Skills Class

In the 2016-2017 academic year we will be running a computer class every Friday morning for the adult immigrant community. The fall semester class will focus on Introduction to Computers and basic skills for navigating around a computer. The spring semester will develop more intermediate skills, teaching some Microsoft applications and enable students to become more confident in their overall use of computers. This class will be offered first to our English Class students, but others may join if there are still spots available.
