Potencia began as a class project to empower immigrants and refugees in the community. Although a language is a key to survival and employment, we were struck by how many people were living without a basic means of communication. Since launching the pilot class in 2019 with 3 tutors and 4 learners, it has been broadening its community impact.
We believe that human connections in the community are the keys to tackling social challenges. Potencia leverages the power of community engagement to make affordable and effective English services accessible for adult immigrants and refugees in the United States.
