Join us to Celebrate Our Community on May 19

WEC will host a virtual event, Celebrate Our Community, on Wednesday, May 19 at 6 pm. 

This event will be a chance to celebrate the resilience of all the members of our community. We’ve captured the stories of students and teachers who stayed connected and kept learning and growing, even while so many other activities in their lives were put on hold. Please RSVP here to join us.

This gathering is our largest fundraiser of the year, so we hope you’ll consider making a gift. (If you would like to join at a sponsorship level, details may be found here.)  We look forward to seeing you there!

FULFILLING OUR MISSION... ONLINE!

Registration is open for our virtual Spring 2021 term which began April 12 and will run for 11 weeks.

We offer 14 levels of English classes-- from Intro to Advanced-- for a total of 8 hours of instruction each week. We have daytime and evening options to meet the diverse needs of our students. We continue to offer the popular individual tutoring sessions launched in 2020. In this model, one student and one teacher arrange to meet weekly for 11 weeks to focus specifically on conversation and/or writing skills. And Citizenship classes have returned! This 10-week course is conveniently scheduled in the early evening so students may attend in conjunction with evening English classes or as a stand-alone.

Students can find more details about group classes (including Citizenship) and about individual tutoring, including links to the registration forms, here. Volunteers interested in teaching will find details about the various positions and a link to the interest form here.

NEARLY THREE DECADES OF SERVICE


For 28 years, Washington English Center has pursued its mission to provide affordable English-language instruction and workforce programs to adult immigrants using volunteers.

WEC accomplishes this through a combination of English language classes, citizenship preparation, computer instruction, workforce development and other support programs which it delivers to adult immigrants from over 100 countries.
