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.
Center for New Americans welcomes immigrants of all races, religions, and national origins. We believe that our community is made strong by a diversity of skills, cultures, and traditions. Center for New Americans is an equal opportunity provider.
Center for New Americans serves immigrants with a dedicated staff of teachers, advisors, program coordinators, legal service providers, administrative staff, and childcare providers. We are grateful for the loyal community of volunteers who amplify our effort.
Center for New Americans is fortunate to be led by an engaged group of volunteer board members who meet monthly, attend program events, and care deeply about the work of welcoming and serving immigrants.
Our board of directors includes the following members:
J Vaughn, Chair
Shardool Parmar, Treasurer
