English as a Gateway

The National Partnership for New Americans’ (NPNA) English as a Gateway Initiative is a national model and strategy to expand English language acquisition in the United States with NPNA members who are leading immigrant rights coalitions across the country. After a successful pilot of English Innovations in 2011-2013 led by OneAmerica, this close partnership with NPNA has allowed for the expansion of the English language acquisition program nationwide. The English as a Gateway Initiative aims to build English infrastructure through policy and resource development; a tested and scalable English language instruction component – “English Innovations”; and, creative integration of digital and technology-based learning through Community Navigators.
