Immigrant Family & Community Engagement

image18

 There is a great need for the family engagement and ELL/immigrant fields to come together in order to learn from each other and improve immigrant family and community engagement efforts. There are very few resources at the local, state, or national level that bring together these two fields and none that specifically looks at the Dual Capacity-Building Framework in terms of immigrant families. This online course seeks to fill this gap.
