Newsletter: You helped an asylum seeker become a citizen
Immigrating to the U.S. is challenging under the best of circumstances, but it can be especially harrowing for an asylum seeker. When Maria Luz, a Salvadoran American student at The ILC, crossed into the United States, she, her husband, and their two sons faced an uncertain future.
To mark our 30th anniversary, The ILC has created a video that celebrates the accomplishments of the past three decades and looks forward to giving immigrants a voice in the years to come.
The Immigrant Learning Center has helped more than 11,500 immigrant and refugee adults learn English, helping them achieve their goals as students, workers, parents and members of their communities. For our 30th Anniversary, we want to introduce you to just 30 of them.
The ILC has created and curated more than 100 resources for teachers of immigrants and immigration. Search our collections on topics like immigrant trauma, ESOL and immigration lesson plans for all ages. All provided resources are free.
