Giving Immigrants a Voice Since 1992
The Immigrant Learning Center, Inc. (ILC), a not-for-profit organization in Malden, MA, has been helping immigrants find their voice for 23 years. More than 8,300 immigrant and refugee adults from across Eastern Massachusetts have benefited from our free, year-round English classes and gone on to find jobs, start businesses, enter training programs, go to college, become citizens, raise families and more.
The ILC’s Public Education Institute informs Americans about the economic and social contributions of immigrants in our society. The Public Education Institute injects the immigrant voice into public discourse about immigration.
The 2015 ILC Immigrant Entrepreneur of the Year Awards Dinner will honor outstanding Massachusetts immigrant entrepreneurs in four categories: outstanding business growth, neighborhood business, high-tech and life science. Nominations are being accepted now through March 13, and the Awards Dinner will be held on May 7, 2015, at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge.
