Centro Presente's Education for Empowerment Program (EFE) provides Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced English; Citizenship; and Spanish Literacy classes to the Latino community of East Boston. Our curriculum has a unique dual focus-- we provide students with both language skills and essential knowledge of their rights as immigrants.
Volunteer teachers must be able to commit 4 hours per week to Citizenship instruction. Lead teachers are supported by at least one assistant teacher in the classroom. Class sizes are small and personal-- 15 students maximum.
The Citizenship class is designed to prepare students for the citizenship exam and interview, a major component of the naturalization process.
Textbooks, lesson plans, resources, and training are provided to all teachers.
