CAL has been a leader in helping immigrant and refugee newcomers since 1975, from helping newcomers understand fundamental aspects of life in the United States to making longer-term Americans aware of the resources and values brought to the United States by its newest residents.

CAL continues to build on this legacy by developing effective strategies and practical tools for educators working with newcomers across a wide range of ages and language proficiency levels.
