Review for Welcome Project Inc, Somerville, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became involved with The Welcome Project in 2009 after meeting the Executive Director and learning about the organization's work. I offered to do some volunteer consulting with the Board, and completed the agreed-upon work after approximately eight months. By then I had come to know the staff, many program participants and also Board members, and had seen the work of The Welcome Project in action. I was impressed by the deep commitment of the staff, and saw the impact that their programs have on adults and youth. By then The Welcome Project had captured my heart! I remained involved, and eventually joined the Board. The Welcome Project works to strengthen the voices of immigrant families in Somerville in many ways. Its classes have a civic engagement link---for example, a special English class called, "Helping Your Child in School." The work of The Welcome Project ultimately improves the lives not only of immigrant families, but creates a path toward Somerville becoming a truly intercultural city.
