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.
Potencia aims to make affordable and effective English classes accessible to immigrants and refugees in the United States. We recruit and train civic-minded college students as English tutors for their communities.
