USCIS Offers Free Training for Citizenship Educators; Upcoming Seminars in Phoenix, Nashville and New York

Community-based adult education programs play an important role in helping immigrants prepare for U.S. citizenship. To support these efforts, USCIS offers free training to enhance the skills needed to teach U.S. history, civics and the naturalization process to immigrant students. Since 2007, we’ve trained more than 10,000 adult educators, program directors, volunteers and representatives from immigrant-serving organizations across the country.

Our seminars provide training to help build, enhance and maintain a comprehensive adult citizenship education program. Upcoming events will be held Aug. 27-28 in Phoenix, Sept. 11 in Nashville and Sept. 29-30 in New York City. For more information or to register, visit our Training Seminars page on the Citizenship Resource Center.

Additionally, in May, we began an in-depth professional development series for adult educators with the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Los Angeles Community College District. Forty-five local instructors are now participating in this three-part series with the goal to become master teachers.

Along with the Citizenship and Integration Grant Program, training seminars are a key component of USCIS’ efforts to build capacity in communities to prepare immigrants for citizenship. We look forward to expanding this training to more cities over the next year. Be sure to visit our Training Seminars page as new events are regularly posted.

This is a very important program that educators should be taking advantage of. Proper training can be the difference between a favorable outcome and an unfavorable one.

Please due to the magnitude of Ebola outbreak in Congo and Nigeria, can you extend your humanitarian assistance to citizens of Congo and Nigerian in the United States; as was extended to citizens of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea by USCIS on 8/15/2014.

Thanks,
