Volunteers at The Immigrant Learning Center, Inc. (ILC) help foreign-born adults learn English as well as gain an understanding of the American Culture. Under supervision of an ILC teacher, classroom volunteers work with students one-on-one or in small groups on conversation, reading, writing or pronunciation. All instruction is in English.
Classes are held mornings from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and afternoons from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m. Volunteers are expected to volunteer for one or more three-hour classes per week for a minimum of six months.
About The Immigrant Learning Center, Inc.
442 Main Street, Malden, MA 02148, 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 2010, it launched an Immigrant Research and Information website ( http:www.immigrationresearch-info.org/) to provide easy access to comprehensive research about U.S. immigrants.
