The heart and soul of our organization is to give Knoxville's refugee, and other internationals,
the most basic tool that they need to survive: English.
We are one of the largest support organizations for adult language learners in Knoxville, offering to our students free English courses, transportation to our courses and childcare during those courses.
Believing the English language to be the currency of advancement, we want to empower our students and their families to assimilate while helping them preserve the tenets of their own culture.
