Our Mission --- To provide English classes and other supportive services for immigrants to empower them to reach their full potential and to lead meaningful lives in the communities in which they live and work.
It’s a wonderful program thank you to Sister Cesilia for the great job, I highly recommend the program to learn English how to write , how to read , make friends ect.
The work that Sister Cecilia and all her volunteers do year after year with One To One is commendable and noble. She and her volunteers give of themselves and bend to help others become better, fully involved citizens. Sister Cecilia works tirelessly to organize and coordinate the schedules of her volunteers so everything works seamlessly for the benefit of those she seeks to serve. Rivertown Magazine nominates her its August 2017 "Hero of the Year" on One To One's 20th Anniversary.
Constituency and their impact on Rockland County
Our students come from Sparkill, Piermont, Tappan, Nyack, Spring Valley, and other Rockland locations. Some come from Northvale and Norwood, New Jersey. Their countries of origin are El Salvador, Mexico, Ecuador, Guatemala, other Central and South American countries, Haiti, and a few from Eastern Europe and Asia. Their ability to speak English leads to their advancement which impacts on the economy of Rockland County providing competent workers in landscaping, construction, culinary and staff in restaurants, health care, child-care, housekeeping, laundering and various occupations in factories. They provide a growing purchasing power and add tax dollars to Rockland. The census of 2010 showed a major increase in the population of Rockland County; the Spanish speaking group with a marked increase. As more immigrants gain residency and citizenship, this will also impact the political scene.
