I recently spent some time in Beverly, Massachusetts and came across an amazing community services institution called Beverly Bootstraps. They offer a variety of free classes, including:

  • ESL
  • Computer Training
  • Adult Literacy
  • Job Readiness
  • Youth After School Programs
  • And much, much more

I actually volunteered for Beverly Bootstraps, teaching in their ESL classes — which they call ESOL for English for Speakers of Other Languages — and their instructors were excellent.

Please help us spread the word!

AACA is offering intermediate-advanced ESL classes. The program is called Next Steps Transitional English Program (Next STEP). The class is FREE for all English language learners who want to improve their English to get jobs, better jobs, or enroll in college. We offer 6 classes for 4 levels–the highest level is divided into a college track or job training track. In addition to ESL, students will work with a counselor to help with enrolling into college or helping with job placement. We have had students go into different job training programs at the completion of our classes or enroll in college like Bunker Hill, UMass Boston, and other colleges of interest.

Each level is a 15 week cycle with classes 4 days a week (Tuesday through Friday). Depending on the level, class time can vary from 8 hours a week to 16 hours a week. The classes are held in the morning and daytime.

We accept applications all year round and run this program 3 times a year—January, May, and September. To apply, interested applicants should come to our information and testing session held every Tuesday at 2PM or certain Mondays at 9AM (ext. 318 will have a list of Monday testing dates).

We appreciate your help in getting the word out! Feel free to contact me with any questions. For more information, please visit our website: Next Step

Hello!

Please help us spread the word! We recently expanded our Adult Basic Education program and changed it to Next Steps Transitional English Program (Next STEP). The class is FREE for all immigrants who have intermediate-high level English levels and have a goal of learning English to get jobs, better jobs, or enroll in college. Our level 1 class begins at SPL 4.

Our classes have had students from all over the world, including Haiti, Vietnam, Cape Verde, Guatemala, China, Honduras, Morocco, Ethiopia, etc. This program has 4 levels–the highest level is divided into a college track or job training track. In addition to ESL, students will work with a counselor here to help with enrolling into college or helping with job placement. We have had students go into different job training programs at the completion of our classes or enroll in college like Bunker Hill, UMass Boston, and other colleges of interest.

We offer a class for the following levels 1, 2, 3, 2&3 combined Intensive, 4A (college track), 4B (job track). Each level is a 15 week cycle with classes 4 days a week (Tuesday through Friday). The class schedule is Tuesday through Friday. Depending on the level, class time can vary from 8 hours a week to 16 hours a week. The classes are held in the morning and daytime.

We accept applications all year round. Interested applicants can start applying for these classes. To apply, they should come to our information and testing session held every Tuesday at 2PM or certain Mondays at 9AM (ext. 318 will have a list of Monday testing dates). We can also arrange a different time with applicants if they cannot make either days.

We hope to serve 150 students per year, so we appreciate your help in getting the word out!
