The We Are New York Project

Partner with the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs to help immigrant parents in your school  learn and practice conversational English. Based on the Emmy-award winning television series, We Are New York models the English people need to manage everyday life situations and solve important problems such as:

 
• How can I help my child in school?
• What questions should I ask my child’s teacher at a parent-teacher conference?
• Can I have letters from the school in my language? Can I request an interpreter to help me communicate with the principal and teachers?
• What can I say when I don’t understand someone?

Parents who participate will become more comfortable speaking English and learn how to access the City services available to New Yorkers. They will also strengthen their connection to your school and have opportunities to interact with faculty, staff and other parents in a meaningful way.

To bring the We Are New York Project to your school, please identify parent leaders or other trusted individuals in your school community to become trained We Are New York volunteers. Volunteers develop leadership skills, build a stronger sense of community in the school and help empower a group of people who are essential to student success – parents.

To learn more about hosting a group, please contact the Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs at 212-788-7654. You can also visit the website, www.nyc.gov/LearnEnglish for more information.
