About the Community Education Center
The Community Education Center strives to promote a better understanding of immigrants and immigration by providing educational resources that inspire thoughtful dialogue, creative teaching and critical thinking. Dedicated to the American values of fairness, social justice and respect for all people, the Center is committed to making immigration an “everybody issue.” The Center also highlights the positive contributions immigrants have made and continue to make to American society through its programmatic work.
The Community Education Center provides youth, education and community leaders with the tools and resources they need to prepare informative and effective immigration programming. Created by educators, for educators, our annual Educators’ Immigration Resource Guide offers new and informative lesson plans, book/film reviews and other valuable resources that support the value of immigration to the United States. The Center also offers additional educational ideas, lesson plans, immigration history, book/film reviews, and links to other educational resources on our website.
We strive to enhance classroom learning by providing a wide variety of accessible and creative educational teaching resources.
