Program Overview

The Gilbert Albert Community Center (GACC) was established in 2005 to educate immigrant populations in the Greater Boston area with the knowledge that education will promote a healthy, vibrant, and flourishing community. The GACC provides high-quality literacy and ESL courses, computer literacy classes, job readiness training, access to social services, and programming that promotes healthy lifestyles. We also run a weekly ESL conversation group, as well as a Haitian women's leadership group.

Mission Statement

Since the Gilbert Albert Community Center (GACC) was established in 2005, our mission has been to educate immigrant populations in the Greater Boston area with the knowledge that education will promote a healthy, vibrant, and flourishing community . The Gilbert Albert Community Center is aware of the sociolinguistic barriers that affect local immigrant populations and threaten to damage individual and communal relationships, as well as cross-cultural development, and seeks to overcome these barriers through ESL courses, access to social services, and programming that promotes healthy lifestyles. The Gilbert Albert Community Center supports local Haitian, Latin American, and West African communities, by providing services that will increase cultural awareness and facilitate acculturation and integration.
