Summary "Many community, faith-based, and civic organizations and employees would like to help immigrants adjust to life in the United States and prepare for citizenship, but do not know where to begin. Fortunately, the experience and practices of existing English as a Second Language (ESL), civics, and citizenship programs for immigrants can help you get started. This guide offers suggestions and strategies gleaned from such programs, providing a framework you can adapt to suit your community's needs and circumstances."--p. 1.
