Clark funded the creation of the 4th floor of the Greater Portland Immigrant Welcome Center in 2018. Now, two years later, a flagship program of the center is underway: the iEnglish Project. The iEnglish Project is a digital English training lab that allows industry-specific learning to occur at the personalized pace of the leader. As it is a digital platform, this can happen remotely as well.
This initiative represents Clark’s engagement with the workforce development issues our community and workforce faces. With the iEnglish lab, employers have a measurable tool with which to empower current employees that may be in roles unsuitable for their true talents. Removing English as a barrier allows both the individual and employer to achieve greater potential.
