Integrated English Literacy and Civics Education
The statewide goal for the Integrated English Literacy and Civics Education Grant Program is to develop, implement, and improve English literacy and civics education services in order to help immigrants and others with limited English proficiency develop the skills and knowledge necessary to become active and informed parents, workers, and community members. The integrated civics program supports the overall statewide mission of ensuring that members of at-risk populations are prepared to succeed as responsible, productive citizens in a global society, thereby enhancing the quality of the state's labor force through the creation of a unified workforce development system. The state's objectives are to develop, implement, and continuously improve adult education and literacy services. Through high quality adult education programs, adult learners are expected to meet or exceed adult education state and federal performance standards.
Goal #1: To enable adults with limited English proficiency, including immigrants and others, to acquire the skills necessary to improve their literacy skill levels in reading, writing, speaking the English language, numeracy, problem-solving, English language acquisition, and other literacy skills.
Goal #2: To enable immigrants and others with limited English language proficiency to acquire the citizenship skills necessary to become active and informed parents, workers, and community members. Applicants must address both of the following objectives. Each applicant must include in its application the projected percentage of clients expected to pass the U.S. Citizenship Exam and will register to vote or vote for the first time.
Goal #3: To enable immigrants and others with limited English proficiency to acquire the skills necessary to increase involvement in community activities.
- Pass the U.S. Citizenship Exam.
- Enrollees who, at the time of enrollment, are not registered to vote or have never voted will register to vote or vote for the first time during instruction anytime during the grant project.
- Will increase involvement in community activities on any one of the following measures: Attend or organize meetings of the neighborhood, community or political organizations, volunteer work for such organizations, contribute to the support of such organizations and volunteer work on community improvement projects
