Adult Education

The Adult Education Program empowers community members to improve their lives and engage in the social fabric of their communities through language access, promotion of literacy, both individual and family, and promotes a connection with the community, essential to fully thriving economically and socially.

We are flexible for working families through providing morning ESL classes, small groups of ESL tutoring, and one-on-one tutoring.


In order to provide a wide range of courses, Junta partners with New Haven Adult Education and Literacy Volunteers of Greater New Haven who provide instructors, and recruit volunteers to teach, tutor, or assist in our ESL and GED programs.
