About

Help refugees and immigrants from the Former Soviet Union prepare for their naturalization exams. Approximately 5 years after arriving in the US, people are eligible to apply for US citizenship. To become naturalized US citizens, they are required to correctly answer questions about US civics and history, answer questions about their personal history, and pass a test of English language comprehension.

This is a very important milestone in immigrants' lives - help them be succesful by leading this weekly preparation class. Training and ongoing support are provided. Ability to speak Russian is very desirable for this volunteer opportunity.

The class has historically been on Mondays from 5 to 6:45, but that time frame is flexible.
