SoBro has been dedicated to providing exceptional educational programs to the South Bronx adult population for more than two decades. We have become a trusted institution in our community and the second address for thousands of residents who come through our doors to take advantage of our education classes.
ESOL & Civics Education
Our ESOL program puts learning into the context of everyday activities, such as opening a bank account, obtaining a driver’s license and drafting a resume. We also help new immigrants prepare for their U.S. Citizenship Exam by familiarizing them with American history and the principles of U.S. government.
Adult Basic Education & GED Preparation
SoBro offers a range of basic education courses, including beginner literacy classes for students transitioning from our English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) instruction or for those functioning at very low literacy levels. Once students have completed our basic education program, those without high school diplomas are encouraged to enroll in GED preparation courses. For clients who decide to pursue higher education, we also provide college application assistance and resources.
Computer training and resources are available to all program participants to help them better prepare for quality employment. Many of our course projects and assignments involve utilizing the Internet and Microsoft Office software.
Free Conversational Spanish Classes (discontinued until further notice). To be added to the waiting list, please visit SoBro Headquarters on Mondays (10:00 am) to take a placement test.
