Becoming a U.S. citizen is a complicated process, particularly now as the USCIS transitions to a new testing format. Help members of our community be successful as they navigate the application process and prepare to take their final steps to becoming United States' Citizens. Salinas Public Library is looking for bilingual (Eng./Sp.) Citizenship Support Volunteers who will work in conjunction with our Lead Instructors.

You will assist new participants with the program's intake process, refer them to local organizations for more specialist help where required; conduct mock naturalization interviews, support the lead instructor in virtual classes; or work one:one with learners by phone, or on computer. Training and support will be provided. The most important skills you can bring to our program are your patience, compassion and the desire to make a very real difference in people's lives.
