Collaborations with Libraries Offer New Learning Opportunities for Immigrants
This factsheet from the Networks for Integrating New Americans initiative highlights what we’ve learned about collaborating to help immigrants and refugees advance in the workforce and in the community. It describes the ways adult education providers and libraries collaborated in White Center (WA), Fresno (CA), and Rhode Island to create innovative and accelerated learning opportunities for English language learners. We highlight the distinct approach taken in each context and how these collaborations benefited their communities as well as the partner organizations. The Networks for Integrating New Americans initiative was funded by USDOE's Office of Career, Technical and Adult Education (OCTAE) as a technical assistance contract led by World Education, Inc., in partnership with IMPRINT, Welcoming America, and the National Partnership for New Americans. World Education, September 2016.
