The ISS Language & Career College of BC (LCC), ISSofBC’s social enterprise initiative, celebrated 25 years of successful operations with festive activities, contests and treats for students and teachers the other day.
From a single classroom with one ESL instructor in 1995, LCC has grown into a highly-regarded training institution, offering quality courses that each year help hundreds of students meet their English and career goals.
“LCC has contributed in a big way to ISSofBC’s success by providing the means for us as a non-profit organization to fund initiatives that facilitate our work in helping immigrants build a future in Canada,” said CEO Patricia Woroch.
“I’m very proud of the work that our incredible staff and teachers do everyday,” said Bonnie So, LCC’s division manager who was part of the original team that built the program. “What an amazing journey this has been,” said Carla Morales, ISSofBC’s director of Language & Career Services, congratulating the LCC team for their hard work and Bonnie for her “amazing leadership.”
Taking time out of his retirement to join the festivities was Clifford Bell, former director of ISSofBC’s Language & Career Services, who is credited with spearheading the growth of LCC from a modest, low-key operation to the flourishing social enterprise it became and continues to be today.
Congratulations to the amazing LCC team!
