Mission Statement

To provide affordable English-language instruction and workforce programs to adult immigrants using volunteers


Since 1993, Washington English Center, formerly Language, Education, and Technology Center (Language ETC), a community-based program, has offered English and literacy training to low-income adult immigrants in the greater Washington area using volunteer teachers and tutors. Our vision is that all immigrants gain the education and support they need to build a better future for themselves and for their children. Our mission is to empower adult immigrants through education to become contributing and self-reliant community members. Our goal is to provide high-quality educational services, access to technology, and life skills programs to any interested low-income adult immigrant in the Washington metropolitan area, regardless of ability to pay.
