This is the cover of Welcoming America's new toolkit on Citizenship strategies to engage receiving communities

This toolkit was developed by Welcoming America and the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, the lead organization of the New Americans Campaign, to provide promising practices and suggestions to engage receiving communities at the intersection of citizenship and welcoming work.

A Guide for K-12 Educators and After-School Providers

Ensuring refugee and immigrant students and their families feel welcome and accepted in their school environments is not only foundational for their academic success, but their longer-term economic and social success, as well. Welcoming Refugees has created this toolkit to offer schools and after school learning centers an easily accessible way to promote a welcoming school

Welcoming Webinar

In this webinar, Welcoming America and Welcome.US share ways you and your community can participate in June's Immigrant Heritage Month and September's Welcoming Week 2017.

Welcoming Webinar

Whether this is your first time hosting or you're a Welcoming Week veteran, join us to explore new ideas for events, new tools, and best practices for hosting. We will also share highlights from last year and plans for this September.

This toolkit is a set of activities that can be done in an ESOL/ABE classroom and with the broader community to help foster dialogue among individuals, share ideas across cultures, find commonalities, and create spaces for building lasting connections. In celebration of Welcoming Week, the toolkit supports interaction among immigrant adults and various other groups (local residents, health care providers, library patrons, parents, employers).
