A Brigade of Civic Volunteers- Provide Citizenship Training to Latino Immigrants

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Make the Road New York

  • 39 people are interested

We are in immediate need to form a small brigade of volunteers to practice "mock interviews" with adult students who will take the citizenship exam in the coming months: July - September 2017.

About the opportunity: Volunteer Citizenship Coaches provide one-on-one practice and support for Spanish-speaking immigrants seeking to pass their naturalization exams. Volunteers conduct "mock interviews" with students which simulate the actual naturalization interview, and provide feedback to students following each "mock interview" to help reinforce students' progress.

Students who passed the exams, have constantly reported that the volunteer's feedback was crucial to passing their citizenship exams and obtaining U.S. Citizenship.

Shifts: Volunteers can take one shift or more per week that lasts approximately 2.5 hours every Saturday. We are looking for dedicated volunteers who can start volunteering from the third Saturday of July through the end of September with the possibility of continuing on for our late Fall class cycle. Wherever fitting, volunteers may also continue volunteering for the following cycle of classes.

Location: Jackson Heights, Queens
