Program Overview

University Settlement has been providing English language instruction and related services to the immigrant population of Manhattan's Lower East Side throughout its 125-year history. Today, we continue to be particularly effective not only in bringing about substantial, measurable gains in communication, reading, and writing skills, but in providing a practical introduction to American life and a link to a larger community as well as a network of supportive services. We offer daytime, evening, and weekend English classes from beginning to advanced, and our aim is to help our students reach their full potential on the job, at home, and in their communities.

Eligibility Requirements:
1. Must be 18 and older.
2. Must be a NYC resident.
3. Must be able to attend in-person classes for 10 months.
