ILP provides English as a Secondary Language (ESL), literacy, adult basic education, and citizenship classes tailored to the needs of refugees with little or no prior education. Wraparound services include in-house preschool, language support, family literacy support, and on-site benefits assistance through a partnership with Hunger Task Force. For refugees, self-sufficiency means gaining the language, life, and social skills needed to attain citizenship, participate in the Milwaukee community, access community resources, and support the healthy social and academic development of their children.
Tutors assist teachers in ESL classrooms with one-on-one or small group work and assist in the math lab and computer lab. Volunteers with special skills – clerical, photography, arts and music, bodywork – are welcome.
ILP is a Department of Justice certified site with two Accredited Representatives qualified to complete paperwork for citizenship and naturalization. Tutors assist citizenship classes and help students preparing for citizenship exams. Special citizenship classes are available for those 60 years and older located at Milwaukee Christian Center.
