International Learning Center

ILC provides ESL, literacy, adult basic education and citizenship classes tailored to the needs of refugees with little or no prior education. Wraparound services include in-house preschool, language support, family literacy support, and on-site benefits assistance through a partnership with Hunger Task Force. For refugees, self sufficiency means gaining the language, life and social skills needed to attain citizenship, participate in the Milwaukee community, access community resources, and support the healthy social and academic development of their children.

Volunteers/Tutors Welcome!

Tutors  assist teachers in ESL classrooms with one-on-one or small group work, and  assist in the math lab and computer lab. Volunteers with special skills  – clerical, photography, arts and music, body work  – are welcome. Details at

Citizenship classes
