ILP Students- Ready to Learn!

Our mission is to enable refugees to function effectively as parents, employees and citizens. Through learner-centered education, the International Learning Program provides individuals with opportunities to develop intellectual, social and life skills in a secure, nurturing environment where all cultures are valued and respected by staff and participants.

The International Learning Program (formerly International Learning Center) has provided English as a Second Language instruction to over 5,000 African and Southeast Asian adult refugees in the Milwaukee area since 1981. We specialize in literacy and communication skills for refugees who have had little or no prior education in their own country.

ILP is a program of Neighborhood House of Milwaukee, Inc. and is a community outreach site of the Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) since 1989. To assist students in reaching their goals, the center offers support services such as translation, referrals, and a licensed on-site preschool.
