Education for Refugees
The goal of this program is twofold: 1) to offer a comprehensive educational orientation program for diverse groups of adult refugees in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community, and 2) to provide English language instruction throughout the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community to meet specific and defined language, employment, and family needs of adult refugees.
How are students referred?
All of our students are refugees or individuals who have been granted asylum by the U.S. government. Individuals who arrive looking for English classes who are not refugees or asylees are referred to other local ESL classes offered by CPCC.
