The Adult Education and Workforce Initiatives program prepares adult immigrant learners with the education, training, and guidance needed to enroll in post-secondary education and job training, leading to employment at family-sustaining wages. Our goal is to provide 300 adults each year with career and educational pathways they need to achieve social and economic self-sufficiency in the United States.

Our students come from all over the world, including China, Haiti, Vietnam, Morocco, El Salvador, Brazil, Ethiopia, Colombia, and Cape Verde.

English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes and workforce training services are offered at the BCNC Boston and Quincy locations, during the day and evenings throughout the year.

BCNC was like a beacon, guiding me in the dark. It’s been very important to me, in my life.
