Recently, City Colleges of Chicago celebrated Adult Education students who just earned their U.S. Citizenship. The new citizens took advantage of the free classes offered at Wilbur Wright College.
“Free citizenship classes are one of the many things we offer within the Adult Education program here at the City Colleges of Chicago,” said Associate Vice Chancellor Luis Navarez. “During the event, we reminded students about the opportunities they have to enroll in free ESL and computer literacy classes, pursue their Illinois High School Diploma by taking advantage of free GED program in English and Spanish, and explore employment options through our several career bridges. Once enrolled in one of our campuses, students also have access to all of the services provided by the colleges, such as free tutoring, childcare, and the ACCESS center.”
“English language learners bring a fresh and varied perspective, and our students, who want to become citizens, share their challenges all the while expressing hope for their future endeavors,” said Associate Dean of Adult Education Joseph R. Tully, M.Ed.
