ENB’s mission is to invest in the future of our region by creating opportunities for English language learners to pursue their educational, economic and civic aspirations.
ENB helps immigrants learn English and, in doing so, enables them to pursue their dreams. Learning English is more than just acquiring language skills, it reduces barriers and family vulnerability, unlocks doors to educational and economic opportunities and increases civic engagement in America.
ENB makes free and affordable English-language classes available to over 1,000 immigrants in Massachusetts every year. We focus on innovative programs that are located in immigrants’ neighborhoods, workplaces and schools and are customized to their experiences and goals.
ENB and its English Works campaign promote systems-level change and awareness of the importance of English language learning opportunities.
