The Institute for Immigrant Concerns is a 501(c)(3) organization in New York City that provides ESL programs and support services, attracting a diverse group of adult immigrants and refugees committed to learning English. All nationalities and backgrounds, across the boroughs and neighborhoods of New York City are welcome to participate in the Institute’s English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. Our students acquire English language skills while celebrating a diversity of countries, cultures, and religions. Our students are highly motivated and supportive of one another as they discover their place in the United States.
The Institute wants to especially thank Reverend Glenn Chalmers and the dedicated staff at the Church of the Holy Apostles, IIC’s newest partner. We also want to thank the Consortium for Worker Education (CWE) and the Isaacs Center (Beacon School PS 198) for welcoming the Institute’s program.
