|About Us and Our Philosophy:
Enroot empowers immigrant youth to achieve academic, career, and personal success through inspiring out-of-school experiences. Working with our team of mentors, tutors, instructors, and case managers, our students envision and fulfill their own American Dream. Enroot alumni graduate from high school with substantially increased self-confidence, advocacy, and leadership skills, and go on to complete college at more than double the rate of their peers.
Enroot, previously known as Cambridge Community Services, is proud to have helped English Language Learners succeed for 25 years through our proven program model. Under our current strategic plan we are poised for rapid expansion in order to achieve our vision of success for all immigrant youth. We moved beyond our Cambridge roots to launch our second site in Somerville in 2016 and we will grow to serve a third site in 2019. With continued success and proof points, we are driven by the opportunity to bring our program to students and communities on a broader national scale.
