Program Overview

The Arab-American Family Support Center’s (AAFSC) Adult Education and Literacy program has been providing English as a Second Language (ESOL), Basic Education in the Native Language (BENL), and Civics ESL services to the Arab, Muslim, Middle Eastern and South Asian (AMEMSA) immigrant communities of New York City since 1994. Our work has served thousands of newly arrived AMEMSA immigrants that face immense social, linguistic, and religious barriers when accessing vital public resources for their social and economic mobility. Our Adult Education and Literacy program serves approximately 250-300 clients a year. Our class schedule is the following: • Adult ESOL and BENL programming runs Monday through Thursday, 9:00am-1:00pm. • Adult ESL Citizenship programming runs every Friday, 9:00am-1:00pm.

Hours of operation: 9am-6pm
