Citizenship Academy

In 2014, the Citizenship Academy was launched as a collaborative effort between the Maddy Institute, the San Joaquin College of Law, the Fresno County Library, and Fresno Adult School.  The Citizenship Academy seeks to provide Civic, Economic, and Linguistic resources for immigrants to become successfully integrated in the community.   The Citizenship Academy is part of the Network for Integrating New Americans of the Central Valley, one of five networks nationwide participating in the Networks for Integrating New Americans (NINA) initiative sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education.

On World Refugee Day (mid-June each year) the Citizenship Academy, in conjunction with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, hosts a Special Naturalization Ceremony at California State University, Fresno.  Over 200 are sworn in as new citizens in front of an audience of over 700.
