Immigrant Families' Educational & Economic Success is Boston's Future!
The New Bostonians Summit Initiative, a multi-year planning process begun by the Office of New Bostonians in 2007, successfully mobilized an unprecedented collaboration among key stakeholders from seven sectors - immigrant community, mainstream advocates, businesses, philanthropies, labor, higher education, and government - to develop an ongoing New Bostonians Agenda to address top priorities identified by Boston’s immigrant communities: educational attainment for their children (K-12 Education), English language acquisition (ESOL), and economic opportunities through sustainable employment (Jobs).
