BRING ENROOT TO YOUR CLASSROOM, SCHOOL, OR DISTRICT. WE’D LOVE TO PARTNER WITH YOU.
Thank you to our program partners for their vision and support!
CITY OF CAMBRIDGE, CAMBRIDGE OFFICE OF WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT, CAMBRIDGE PUBLIC SCHOOLS, AND CAMBRIDGE RINDGE AND LATIN SCHOOL
Enroot was born as City Links, a collaboration between then Cambridge Community Services (CCS), Cambridge Office of Workforce Development (OWD), and Cambridge Public Schools in 1992 as an effort to address a particularly large influx of immigrants, primarily from Central America. In 2014, the Principal of CRLS offered the program office and classroom space in the high school, to enable us to operate more effectively within the fabric of the school's infrastructure. For the past 3 years, the Principal, Superintendent of Schools, and the Cambridge Public Schools Department have made financial commitments to ensure the sustainability of Enroot as part of the CRLS community.
CITY OF SOMERVILLE, SOMERVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS, SOMERVILLE HIGH SCHOOL
We are encouraged by significant enthusiasm and planned investments from a broad spectrum of partners, including the Somerville Superintendent of Schools, Somerville Mayor, ELL administrators, local nonprofits, and community leaders, eager to bring Enroot to Somerville. The pilot program will serve 20-30 students, kicking off in the Fall of 2016. This partnership will result in an even greater impact across the Cambridge/Somerville communities.
Many thanks to our generous supporters, donors, and sponsors!
