Do you feel the need to organize your community to get more respect? Then you can help legal permanent residents continue the American Dream by helping inform them of the benefits and requirements of citizenship. Volunteer with a Partner's citizenship program to help immigrants achieve their dream of American citizenship!
Refugees and immigrants struggled to come to America in search of a better life. For many of them the last barrier to being fully integrated in American society is the acquisition of U.S. citizenship. The process can be daunting, and many immigrants lack the resources or access to information on how to apply.
How can you help?
- Provide community outreach to spread the word about the importance and advantages of becoming a citizen and encourage people to start the naturalization process.
- Volunteer at a Partner Citizenship Clinic, held throughout the year. Assist lawful permanent residents with citizenship preparation and civic education, serving as a tutor for people that are preparing for the naturalization test. (Note: you must be 18 years old to prepare a naturalization application and attend a training to learn how to prepare the application.)
There are trainings available to help you learn the naturalization requirements, how to talk to your community, and how to tutor an individual for the naturalization test.
