Raising Our Voices
Raising Our Voices is the premier ESOL recognition event in Massachusetts. Since 2014, over 80 prominent businesses have been recipients of our English Works Certificate of Recognition for their continued support of ESOL programming for immigrant workers. CEOs and their front-line immigrant employees often attend the event together, celebrating with other community, labor, and elected leaders.
In addition, ESOL students are honored for their tenacity and for their outstanding performance while completing ESOL courses. Proceeds from Raising our Voices will help immigrants enter the workforce with better English skills to pursue their dreams.
Raising our Voices 2020 will be different this year. The event will feature a guest speaker, entertainment, student testimony, and a new award “Support for Essential Workers,” as well as the recurring awards: Agent of Change, ESOL Business Leadership, and Rising Star Student Leaders. Some of our top sponsors have included: C&W Services, Commonwealth Corporation, Eastern Bank, UniFirst, BioMed Realty, Corcoran Management, and many more!
