About Us

Based on Center for Employment Training’s (CET) philosophy of self-determination, the Immigration and Citizenship Program’s (ICP) mission is to empower the community in Santa Clara County by providing quality immigration and citizenship services and by promoting and strengthening civic involvement among the immigrant population. 

 

Santa Clara County's immigrant population exceeds 600,000 people, many of whom have not completed high school. In this demographic, a lack of literacy and employment skills severely limits cultural integration, employment opportunities, and economic self-sufficiency. The Immigration and Citizenship Program addresses the needs of this often overlooked population. It has provided citizenship, immigration, and integration education services to immigrants from numerous sites for more than twenty five years and continues to be a highly regarded community resource for citizenship and literacy education.


Our values:

  • Commitment to assist and inspire immigrants to gain the benefits of citizenship.
  • Educate and empower our clients to navigate the legal immigration and naturalization process.
  • Promote understanding, trust, respect, and dignity by encouraging the welcoming community to volunteer and be part of immigrants' successful integration.
  • Quality, free and low-cost services provided by BIA accredited representatives and staff attorney.
  • Engage newly naturalized citizens to embrace civic involvement, work together, learn about each other's cultures and step up as leaders for social change.
