Miami-Dade County Public Schools’ English Center:
Bilingual Human Trafficking Workshops
June 19, 2020
On June 19, 2020, The John J. Brunetti Human Trafficking Academy will partner with The English Center of Miami-Dade County Public Schools to provide three bilingual workshops on human trafficking occurring in Miami-Dade County.
The English Center (TEC) was established in 1962 as a special center for English instruction to address the needs of the large numbers of refugees arriving at the shores of South Florida. TEC remains a gateway to education and opportunities for arriving immigrants, as well as a symbol of pride and a reminder to many Americans of their first educational and cultural experience in the United States.
The Academy is delighted to provide education on human trafficking to both high school and adult immigrants in our community at TEC. To learn more about TEC visit: www.tecmiami.net.
