El Centro de Educación de Trabajadores has been serving the Hell's Kitchen community since 1975. Through evening education programs, community organizing and cultural events, we help students learn new languages and participate in an exciting cultural exchange. Classes are offered in Spanish, English and Mandarin. We also offer a free Intercambio (English/Spanish language exchange) class Tuesday evenings. An all-volunteer teaching and administrative staff makes classes available at low cost. Our teachers are Native speakers and bring both a passion for teaching and a love of language into every classroom. We are located at Hartley House, a Community Center and Settlement House, serving the Clinton and Hell’s Kitchen neighborhoods since 1897.
Our classes are not wheelchair accessible. They are located on the 2nd-4th floors of a building without an elevator.
