“English efficiency opens up jobs for immigrants. And a lack of English skills can be
an impediment to jobs, to obtaining proper healthcare, or to fully participating in the American economy or civic duties."

“As an immigrant, I have benefited greatly from programs like these. I have hired and managed immigrants that graduated from ENB funded programs. From personal and professional perspectives, supporting ENB makes sense to me.”

“Access to ESOL classes empowers immigrants to become active members of their communities by enabling them to seek new employment, pursue an education, become civically engaged, or launch an innovation. When we open doors for these individuals, we directly benefit our entire community.”

“ESOL makes a significant impact on all aspects of life. Having English language skills can allow a family to build generational wealth, get an education and can insure you receive proper medical care. I feel ESOL
is a key tool to level the playing field in a city with
so much inequity.”

“Learning English is a
social justice right. We need to give people the tools to participate in the dream. ENB is widening the field
of adult ESOL, giving them the opportunity to become who they aspire to be.”

Mayor’s Office for Immigrant Advancement

“As an immigrant from India at the age of 9, I witnessed firsthand how my parents’ improvement of English impacted not only their careers but also their ability to culturally and civically contribute to life in America. Offering ESL courses is a small investment that pays profound dividends over time for both our immigrants and our Commonwealth.”
