The College of Southern Nevada is pleased to announce a new partnership with Dream Big Nevada and the Immigrant Home Foundation (IHF) to provide free English as a Second Language classes in locations throughout the community.
Through CSN’s Division of Workforce & Economic Development, ESL classes, High School Equivalency courses and workforce training are being offered at CSN locations and in community centers in areas with especially high Hispanic populations.
“It is our mission to empower our students and our communities to achieve, succeed and prosper,” said CSN President Dr. Federico Zaragoza. “For many individuals, the high school equivalency diploma is often a first step toward their pathway to higher education, career training, or employment opportunities.”
By bringing CSN’s classes directly to the communities we serve the college can help people more easily enter the region’s workforce, enable those who desire more training to continue and earn a certificate or college degree at CSN, and strengthen our ties to the community we’ve served for nearly 50 years.
To announce details of the new partnership, Dr. Zaragoza will be joined by Immigrant Home Foundation Executive Director Luz Marina Mosquera, Dream Big Nevada Executive Director Astrid Silva and IHF Director of External Affairs Ruben Kihuen for a live, virtual event at 2 p.m. October 8. The announcement will be carried on CSN’s Facebook page at Facebook.com/CSNNV.
