Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New Orleans

  • 17 people are interested

We are seeking reliable, passionate volunteers to support non-native English speakers in the Greater New Orleans area studying for the naturalization exam. Volunteers work primarily as teaching assistants and tutors in our citizenship classes, with a focus on English conversation practice, the 100 civics questions for the naturalization test, questions from the application for naturalization, and conducting mock interviews with students.

Classes occur Monday-Thursday from 6pm to 8:30pm, currently offered virtually. Volunteers are asked to commit to one class a week for a minimum of 3 months with the program. Once safe to do so, classes will be offered at the North Kenner Library.

It is not required, but is helpful, to speak a language other than English. We provide a basic ESL and Citizenship training and will provide ongoing professional development opportunities for volunteers. Great opportunity for anyone interested in education, policy/law, ELL, or immigrant/refugee issues. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us!
