What We Do
All Center for New Americans Classes are FREE.

- We offer Citizenship & Immigration Services.
Center for New Americans (CNA) is a community-based, non-profit adult education center that provides the under-served immigrant, refugee and migrant communities of Massachusetts' Pioneer Valley with education and resources to learn English, become involved community members and obtain tools necessary to maintain economic independence and stability.
Immigrants will acquire the tools to participate fully in the community and to become economically independent.
Center for New Americans welcomes and serves immigrants from all races, colors, countries, religions, and national origins.
Over the course of more than 25 years of teaching English and offering citizenship and other support services to immigrants in Western Massachusetts, we have been inspired by our students’ determination to learn English and U.S. culture. We marvel at the courage and perseverance with which they strive for better jobs, help children in school, start new businesses, and study to become U.S. citizens.
We believe that our community is enriched by the skills, talents, and contributions of people from all over the world, and we are grateful for the outpouring of support and volunteer offers from our generous community.
