New Neighbors Education Center

The New Neighbors Education Center provides education programs and related services to help immigrant and refugee families become self-sufficient and fully participating members of our community.

They offer English Classes with nine levels of adult English classes that are carefully structured and result-orientated. They also offer Childcare during those classes. In addition the Campagna Center offers Family Literacy classes so the whole family can learn together!

Guest speakers and field trips provide information to connect students with community resources to enhance learning.

“At New Neighbors, my sons and I are learning English.  And we are learning that people from different countries, like Sudan, El Salvador, Jordan, Mexico, Irag, India, and Kyrgyzstan can be friends.  I love school.  I love my teachers.  And, I love my friends.” Riham

Classes:

The Campagna Center English Classes offer two 12-week, 90-hour terms a year. English classes, from beginning to advanced, meet three mornings a week and childcare is provided during class.

They have welcomed students from over 70 different countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Classes met at the new Fowler House of Christ Church, which has nine ESL classrooms, five childcare rooms, meeting rooms, and a computer lab.

Our very own Perri is going to be a guest speaker on November 7th!

New Neighbors is supported by financial and in-kind contributions from many caring individuals, business, foundations, churches, and civic groups because fees do not cover the cost of providing our high quality program.
