Sign on to the English Works Campaign

agrees to support and participate in the English Works Campaign.
As a signatory to English Works, our organization agrees to be listed on English Works materials and will have a seat on the Campaign Committee.
We enter into this voluntary agreement with English Works in a spirit of partnership and collaboration, and with a vision of a Commonwealth that provides all residents with a pathway to economic self-sufficiency; ensures a stable, skilled workforce for Massachusetts businesses today and in the future; and integrates immigrants into the fabric of our economy, communities and shared civic life.

English Works Certificate of Recognition

The English Works Certificate of Recognition is a cornerstone of the Campaign, serving to raise the visibility of the need for English language classes and critical role that businesses and unions play in developing the Commonwealth’s workforce.  The Certificate recognizes businesses and joint labor-management programs that support English language classes for immigrants in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Certificates are awarded to private, public and non-profit employers and joint labor-management programs.  Other key labor, community, and educational organizations who, in partnership with awardees, have demonstrated leadership in the provision of ESOL services are also recognized. The Campaign has held successful Recognition events with Lt. Governor Timothy Murray, Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone (see winners here).

Awardees are encouraged to make their employees and members, customers, and industry peers aware of their leadership and good civic and corporate citizenship, as demonstrated by their commitment to the immigrant workforce and related successful business practices.
