The Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center (BCNC) Adult Education & Workforce Initiatives Program provides adult immigrants with the language and support they need to achieve social and economic self‐sufficiency in the United States. Our services include English classes for immigrants with education and career
goals, a customer service job training program for immigrants seeking entry‐level employment,
and an English class for parents and caregivers of K‐12 children. Through assisting in our ESOL
