Our 20th Anniversary Event Series will celebrate ENB’s rich history of leadership at the intersection of adult education, workforce development and immigration. The event series, along with print and media stories, will include approximately seven events between June and December of 2022. We hope to share this important milestone with ESOL programs, elected officials, business and corporate leaders; nearly 20,000 adult ESOL students both past and present and the public.
