PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Community College (BCC) will hold a virtual panel titled "SUCCESS Presents: Successful Immigrants in the Berkshires" on Friday, Feb. 4 from 5-6:30 pm.
The panel, held on Zoom, is specifically geared to English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) students. BCC students will receive forum credit for participating.
"This workshop provides an intentional space for BCC's ESOL learners to connect, grow their network, and strengthen their skillsets with other Spanish-speaking BCC alumni and community members," said BCC Academic Success Coach Kelsey Jones. "The panel will be focused on how to maximize success in a predominantly English taught environment as an ESOL learner."
Panelists include BCC Senior Admissions Counselor Eleanore Velez, BCC Director of Adult Learning Program Ana Suffish and several representatives from Latinas 413, a local advocacy group that helps immigrants expand their social and economic capital by serving as a bridge to available resources in Berkshire County.
