English Academy for Newcomers Website
English Academy for Newcomers (EAN) needed a new WordPress website for its students and teachers to be able to access important course information. The site needed to be setup both for students and teachers. I worked with EAN on layout and content that would help teachers or students find the information they need. I also helped EAN with technical tasks such as migrating to a new host and making sure the site was GDPR compliant.

About English Academy for Newcomers
EAN began as a small volunteer initiative in the winter of 2016. EAN’s founder, Phillip Wozny, was volunteering with Welkome en Utrecht at the Joseph Haydnlaan Asylum Seeker Center. With Welkome en Utrecht, Phillip helped newcomers engage in fun, educational activities. There was a curious absence of English language education. As a former English teacher himself, he reached out for help to meet the large demand for English education.
Through the Incluusion program, Utrecht University provided much of initial infrastructure to get EAN off the ground. A dedicated group of volunteers quickly gathered round and EAN opened its doors to students in February of 2017. The following fall, current executive director Kinan Alajak joined EAN as a teacher. In 2018, Kinan took over as executive director. There Kinan reshaped the administrative structure and significantly grew the organization. Tejaswini Pawar joined EAN as a marketing director that spring, further expanding the administratie apparatus. The following summer, Phillip, Kinan, and Tejaswini incorporated EAN as a foundation.
