      Welcome to NDEC - Lawrence, MA

                           Annual Appeal Continues- Spring 2018

Our 2018 Spring Appeal Fundraiser began in mid-March.  To all who have taken the time to send their support our way, we are grateful and thank you for your kindness!
We are still accepting donations, Won't you please donate today, sending your tax deductible gift though our Network for Good  portal?    

Or mail  your check to us here at NDEC-Lawrence, 354 Merrimack Street, Ste 210 Lawrence, MA 01843. Thank you for considering our request. We are so grateful for any assistance you can provide.

Through grants and with support from generous donors like you  we are able to provide  formal language study, informal conversation practice, job training, and tutoring for an exam or citizenship interview. Our classes are in the morning, afternoon and evenings and Saturdays, to be as available as possible for the student with many commitments. With your help our adult learners make the most of their situations, make advancements in the workplace, follow a path to appropriate community resources and continue to maintain a home life that is as stable as it can be. Your generous contributions ensure that our staff and an incredible group of dedicated volunteers give these students what they need to grow and flourish.
Your generosity has allowed us to make real progress:

  • More than 370 individuals have received National Career Readiness Certificates since 2010, improving their employability.
  • Certificates of Completion to Nurse Assistants and Home Health Aides are at 617 since 2009.
  • Improved Levels in Rosetta Stone, a language learning software program, numbered 124 last year.
  • 22 new American citizens since 2012
  • 201 are currently studying English with us which has reduced to 210, our list of those still waiting to enter a class.

One-to-one, small group, whole class, skills training and computer-aided instruction are all possible because supporters like you are so willing to help us.
Thank you for your support!
