    Mission

    Our mission is to provide services to immigrants from different parts of the world that aren’t privileged to many resources due to their financial and economic reasons. Therefore we created a variety of programs to offer to these immigrants in order to help them adapt to the cultural structures of the American society. We came up with a plan to not only help them teach the English language through the ESL course, but also engage them in various activities that can be beneficial to their daily lives. For example, we will be offering nutrition classes that can help them learn to maintain a healthy balanced diet. In addition, we will involve the participants to a fun and engaging exercise routine so they could further maintain their healthy lifestyle. Our program also offers classes that will teach basic computer skills. Aside from these classes, we will be simultaneously running a program directed for the children so that the parents who come to take these classes can feel free to drop them off under a safe and educational environment. The program will consist of engaging activities such as arts and craft, face painting, and many more. Throughout the program, we would also like to offer series of motivational speeches and workshops that can guide these people to set goals and achieve success in their lives.
