Beyond the Classroom

Open Arms Project (OAP)

The MCIF Open Arms Project (OAP) began in 2009 as a way to address our participants’ education outside of the ESL classroom. Through our partnerships with community-based organizations and New York City agencies, MCIF provides workshops, services, and information to our participants in a variety of areas. OAP addresses four core areas: Empowerment, Workforce, Legal and Education. See our Community Partners or Contact Us to find out more information about getting involved in OAP.
