Our
Mission 
Key_icon_website.png
For Knoxville's refugees and other internationals, the most vital tool they need to survive is ENGLISH.
Every step of their journey will require them to speak, hear and write a basic amount of English. This is the key for them to not only survive, but thrive.

Center for English was established as a non-profit resource center to teach English and life skills.

We aim to remove the two main obstacles preventing parents (especially Moms) from attending class:

       • transportation to and from class

       • childcare while they are in class
