Established in 1977, the New Americans Program provides comprehensive programs and services to Queens’ most recent residents. This presentation will focus on how the program accomplishes its goal to help immigrants integrate into American society, while at the same time encouraging them to share their diverse cultures with the community-at-large. There will also be a discussion on cultural program planning and purchasing Spanish language materials.
