Educating, training and empowering all
Dorcas International Institute is the leader of the Greater Providence Adult Education Consortium. And along with our partner agencies — the Center for Southeast Asians (CSEA), the Community Action Partnership of Providence (CAPP), and the Scalabrini Dukcevich Center (SDC) — we offer classes for learning English and American culture, industry-specific job training, GED, and more! Our courses help students reach their educational goals, whether that’s learning English, preparing for college, or gaining valuable work skills. Classes are for both newcomers to the United States and long-time residents.
Each course engages students at whatever level they are currently at with their English speaking, listening, and reading skills. Our teachers run exciting and interactive classes that encourage students to help shape their own learning experiences.
Dorcas International Institute of Rhode Island strives to create a welcoming environment for all, working to empower the most vulnerable among us for more than 100 years. We meet our clients where they are by providing integrated, wraparound programs and services helping those seeking to overcome educational, cultural, economic, and language barriers.
