The New Neighbor Project offers online and in-person English as a Second Language (ESL) courses to adults. The New Neighbor project provides support to our immigrant neighbors through donation-based ESL classes and citizenship classes, as well as citizenship application assistance and scholarship opportunities to help provide a holistic pathway to citizenship for people in our community.
