English for Action’s (EFA) mission is to create opportunities for the self-empowerment of immigrant families in Rhode Island. Through participatory English language, childcare, and other educational programs, we link language learning, leadership development and community-building. We use innovative learning tools, such as the visual arts, theater of the oppressed and action projects to engage adults and younger learners in dialogue, reflection and collaboration. Through these processes, we strive to create transformative learning communities inside and outside the classroom, in order to effect meaningful and community-based social changed in Olneyville and the greater Providence community.
