Project Description

The Education Department of the Multicultural Community Resource Center offers the following classes:

  • English as a Second Language (ESL)
  • Employment readiness
  • Workforce instruction
  • Basic computer instruction
  • English as a Second Language classes include five levels of instruction, from phonics to advanced. Our ESL students attend four classes to five five days a week, depending on the time of day. Immigrants and refugees interested in attending GED(c) preparation classes, can do so twice a week, in the evening. All students are tested and carefully placed in level-appropriate classes. All classes are free of charge and are funded through the Pennsylvania Department of Education by the Bureau of Post-Secondary and Adult Education.

    Individualized classes in specific areas can be prepared for groups or employers as requested.
