PHOENIX - 3

Mayor Greg Stanton is committed to promoting the importance of citizenship and working with local non-profits that engage in citizenship services for Phoenix’s immigrant and refugee community. The City of Phoenix identified English language learning as a vehicle that can increase the attainment of citizenship, education, and employment. The city is currently creating workforce development programs for immigrant and refugee communities that focus on English language learning, vocational English language programs, and recertification programs for refugees entering the country with higher-level education degrees and experience. Phoenix libraries also offer citizenship workshops and other English services.
