Welcome to our country, our community, and our program! It is our great hope that in time you will consider Northwest Indiana home. Our desire is to help you navigate your new surroundings, and establish a thriving life for yourself and those you love.
On our site, you will have the opportunity to learn about our many free programs. In an effort to create a strong community, one very special aspect of Compass is that all of our programming meets at the same place, at the same time, and on the same nights! This means that if you are a parent, both you and your children can come to Compass together, learn in your specific areas of need, and then meet up to travel home in your vehicle or in our van.
We hope you will take the time to get to know us and join in our growing community of learners. You will be warmly welcomed by our experienced Compass volunteers and fellow newcomers. Please look at our calendar, and come as often as you are able!
I came to Compass since last winter. It is very helpful for me and for my kids too. I learned English from this Compass and want to mention about all the volunteers. They are friendly and very kind with us. I never forget them.
Parent & Participant from China
Compass makes me proud and work hard for four years. It’s a really fun school. I hope more people join us, because it is fun and I love my tutor. I see that I have improved a lot in reading. I also have made A LOT of friends here. I think kids should go here.
