BOSTON – Boston-based non-profit, A Faith That Does Justice, announced today that it has appointed Boston resident Peter Harvey to lead its English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program.
“I am confident that Peter’s faith and commitment to serving others will serve him well in this role,” said Father Peter Gyves, SJ, MD, who founded A Faith That Does Justice, an interfaith organization that raises consciousness about social issues and offers opportunities for people to put their faith into action through service to others. “Helping newcomers to our country feel welcome and build a life here is a priority for A Faith That Does Justice and we look forward to working with Peter to expand the program.”
Originally from New York, Harvey relocated to Boston to be closer to family and started his own company 17 years ago. He is the CEO of Intelli-Global, an analytics and marketing service provider specializing in machine learning and advanced analytics based in Boston.
“When I learned about the organization’s mission, it felt like a good fit for me because I’ve done a lot of volunteer work with underprivileged individuals, especially inner-city kids,” said Harvey. “Life can be so daunting, and they can get lost, but we can offer programs that can help these individuals stay on a path of continuous development. That is what America is about.”
A Faith That Does Justice recently announced that it is accepting ESOL applications for the fall semester. Classes begin during the week of September 9, 2019 and continue through early December. Students may choose to attend a morning class session or one of two evening class sessions. Each session meets twice per week. The curriculum, which is developed in partnership with Jewish Vocational Services, is designed for non-English and beginner English speakers. Enrolled students will be placed into class sessions with others at similar skill levels. Interested applicants may apply at www.faith-justice.org/esol.
