i would like to give a review of the MCIF center, this non profit is not only helping the latino community become more active in being part of the community learning options but it is changing lives. i have a few friends that are attending classes and they have great feedback about MCIF, such as they feel like they finally have a great place local in brooklyn to further their language education with great teachers. i refer and recommend all my latino friends to be a part of MCIF activities, and i would like to see this place to continue to grow. Thanks to the education program, latinos are being given more chances in jobs thanks to their growing knowledge in the language and helping families become more unified. i can't wait to gather some friends to volunteer at this center in the nearby future and for more years to come!
New York City needs more places like The Maura Clarke-Ita Ford (MCIF) Center!!!
As women come to the US and begin their news lives they sometimes need new skills to help make them successful - that is what this country is all about. Education is the tool all humans need to succeed and a center like this one is the best part of humanity.
Teaching English, learning new revenue sources to provide for their families, and participating in their communities are the backbone of the United States and The Maura Clarke-Ita Ford (MCIF) Center is an incredible example for us all.
I'm proud to say that my best friend works for the Maura Clarke-Ita Ford Center. The Maura Clarke-Ita Ford Center is a very important resource for Brooklyn women who are immigrants to the United States. It not only helps them learn proper English, it helps them assimilate to our culture. The women that work at MCIFC are extremely dedicated to their work, often working on weekends and after hours to make sure they do the best job they can. They empower non-native women to get out and explore their new environments and become part of their communities. The center therefore not only benefits these women, but also their neighborhoods and communities. Many women are single mothers and would be unable to support their families without the help of MCIFC. The service they provide is invaluable to the community of Brooklyn.
I visited this center and went to a fund raiser. I saw the people that were served in the community and how proud they were about their accomplishments. They were learning English and helping their families learn English too.
The staff of the center is extremely supportive of the community. Through the language and GED classes that are needed so much with such a diverse and changing population, the Center enables its students to change their lives. Over and over, I've seen education change the direction of a students life, allowing them new opportunities. It would be great if the center was able to do more - they need a building, frankly. The volunteers they have are excellent, but it would be great if they could do more outreach to bring in more volunteers.
The Maura Clarke-Ita Ford Center does extremely important work in the community. It can be very difficult to take on a new experience and keep one's personal integrity. MCIF Center Inc. helps people to make those transitions in their lives.
Review from Guidestar
The school are very good,I'm want to go but my work schedule is in the same time,if you have time go to school and study English in MCIF Center.
this school is very good teaching , my aunt is going to this school and she's learning very fast English.
This organization works hard to educate adults who have a yearning to learn English as a second language. The staff is dedicated to the education of these individuals, and they go to great lengths to ensure every students' success. Being a non-profit agency, dedicated employees have written numerous grants to keep the school in business. I have spent a lot of time with one of the agency's employees, and I find her to be a hard-working advocate for education.
Review from Guidestar
I'm a filmmaker who spent time shooting at the MCIF Center over the course of several days as part of a larger documentary. I attended classes as well as an eye care event offered to clients and interviewed staff members. I was impressed from the moment I walked in to the moment I left - I observed caring, smart teachers that had students very engaged. The eye care event was well organized and a real boon to those who needed help with their vision - providing exams, glasses and other tools to better people's health. This is a truly empowering place and a worthwhile organization to support.
