What students are saying about ALP:

“My experience with the Adult Education Program has been very positive. I have achieved short-term goals in writing, reading and conversation, expanding vocabulary and having a better understanding of the English language. I have also had the opportunity to meet and interact with other people, locals and foreigners, which allows me to have more practice of the English language and the knowledge of different cultures. Personally, I am very grateful for the opportunity to be part of the Adult Education Program thus, allowing me to have greater personal projection and the achievement of the objectives and goals set at the academic and social level.”

Veronica Solorzano, ESOL 5

My time at JPCCALP was unmatched! My favorite part of my internship was the flexibility, which granted me to be an advocate of my own learning. I was able to create a learning plan that was best for me! I, also, was able to learn and network with brilliant teachers and receive weekly targeted feedback. Through an arsenal of learning resources and teacher feedback to sharpen my teaching confidence and skills. An incredible opportunity!

Thank you again for an incredible experience.
All the best,


Jasmine Santos

I am very grateful to JP Adult Learning Program for this opportunity to improve my English and feeling support in this new stage outside my country. I especially appreciate the dedication of the teachers, in my case, Madie Thurber, and all the professionals who work at this institution. They have a vocation to service and a high level of social commitment, with the excellent direction of Joyce Henderson. I offer to volunteer where I may be helpful to gratefully return to JP Adult Learning Program their kind support.
Blessings,

Our Mission

 

The Jamaica Plain Community Centers Adult Learning Program (ALP), part of the Jamaica Plain community since 1982, was established in response to the demand for basic education, employment-related skill building and ESOL services among local adults. During that time, ALP has provided free education, pre-vocational, and other support services to low and moderate income adults to over 5400 adult learners. Each year, we serve over 300 adults, from 18 years of age and up.

The mission of ALP is to provide an innovative learner-centered, participatory educational program to educationally disadvantaged and Limited English Proficient adults. Our goal is to help students attain the education, skills, and self-reliance that will enable them to more fully participate in their communities and in the education of their children, and will further enhance opportunities for personal development, life-long learning, and economic self-sufficiency. Towards that end, we provide the tools to enable historically disenfranchised individuals and groups to more fully access, utilize, participate in, and impact the resources and development of their communities.
