Our programs and partners

2015-2016 Program Year

Engage NWA Partnership

The EngageNWA Partnership engages stakeholders from all sectors to create a joint approach to integrating immigrants. As co-chairs of a pillar, we have facilitated the strategic planning process for a coalition of 44 organizations.


We are developing a comprehensive resource guide for New Americans that can be accessed online. Often New Americans are unaware of what services are available to them; our guide, which catalogues 300+ services, can close that communication gap and ensure people get the help they need.

American Dream Leaders

We are engaging the next generation of New American leaders, offering training in community engagement, cultural competency, and job-readiness. Our Leaders serve their communities while gaining the skills to thrive in a diverse workforce.

Service Learning at the University of Arkansas

Our course allows student researchers to engage with multicultural communities while collecting data on the diversity of boards and commissions in the region. Findings will be used directly to help create a pipeline for more diverse leadership.

2016-2017 Program Year

Workplace Education Program

The Cisneros Center for New Americans, in collaboration with Tyson Foods, has created a workplace education program, called Upward Academy, to provide free and accessible ESL, GED, citizenship, and functional literacy classes in the workplace. In addition to these core classes, the program also provides workshops on financial and tax literacy, legal issues, healthcare, safety, and accessing community resources and services.

Education Program

We are engaging New American parents in a program that ensures they access to a broad range of educational options for their children. This work empowers families to make choices necessary to improve their children’s educational achievement.
