Mission,Vision &Values

Mission Statement:
English for New Bostonians ensures access to high-quality English classes so that adult immigrants across race, education, and migratory backgrounds can pursue their aspirations and contribute to a Commonwealth that fully values their talents and voices. 

Our Vision:
We envision a City and a Commonwealth in which adult immigrants have an open door to economic pathways, resources, and community life by learning English. Policymakers, employers, and residents view English learning as a basic right that also benefits communities and the region as a whole.

English for New Bostonians helped catalyze these changes during a historic moment of broad interest in social justice and workforce issues by:
  designing and supporting innovative ESOL programs and delivery methods including remote and
     hybrid models;
  forging partnerships to implement and expand access to these methods;
  inspiring allies to support these approaches; and
  shaping policy and opinion to sustain and grow them.

English for New Bostonians is strategically positioned as an ally to English language learners and immigrant communities, a resource to service providers, and a partner to employers, municipalities, and government agencies.  ENB's solutions embrace social and economic justice as the realistic pathway to economic recovery and thriving for our great city.

High caliber English classes are key to ensuring the foreign born – Boston’s and Massachusetts’ fastest growing population – can fully contribute their talents across our workforce, schools, and civic institutions.
