The Center for the Integration & Advancement of New Americans (CIANA) is a social services organization that works to integrate new immigrants from South Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and Latin America into the socio-economic and civic life of American society while maintaining pride in their cultural heritage.

We are looking for a Civics/Citizenship instructor to teach twice per week. Our classes generally have less than 10 students who range in English proficiency from beginner to intermediate. We are looking for a self-starter who is comfortable with diversity and can make the class interesting and fun.

The primary responsibilities are:

  • Preparing students for the Naturalization test and interview
  • Incorporating US History and Government in their lessons
  • Strengthening speaking, reading, and writing skills needed for the test


  • Available Monday and Wednesday mornings from 10:30 am - 12 pm (afternoon/evening availability can be considered)
  • Able to devote 3 months minimum
  • Minimum 3 rd year BA in history, political science, government (or if not studying these subjects can explain why they would make a great teacher!)
  • Experience teaching English a HUGE plus!

How to apply:

Please send a cover letter and resume to Ms. Devon Stein at volunteer@cianainc.org. Please include the position title in the subject line of the application.
