Citizenship Preparation: A Supplement to the Adult Education Resource Guide and Learning Standards updates adult education practitioners on the naturalization process. This guide connects citizenship preparation with not only New York's adult education resource guide, but also with the National Reporting System for Adult Education. Hudson River Center wrote, formatted, printed and distributes Citizenship Preparation. Training workshops for using the guide are available.

Native Language Literacy Screening Device (NLLSD) is an assessment tool designed to allow ESOL practitioners to gain a sense of the native language literacy levels of their learners. The screening device is presented in 27 primary languages, ranging from Albanian to Vietnamese. In addition to editing and formatting NLLSD, Hudson River Center oversees its printing and distribution. Training workshops for using the screening device are available.

Hudson River Center is one of three official trainers in New York State for the On Common Ground series. On Common Ground examines what it means to be a citizen of the United States though video and print materials depicting modern-day stories of real people. The series is appropriate for a variety of learning environments, including citizenship preparation, pre-GED and GED classes for adult students, and U.S. studies, civics, and history classes for secondary students. The 15 video episodes are designed to support classroom instruction or distance learning.
