**Please directly email Heather Morgan to inquire about this position at heathermorgan@auroramhr.org. Email address is updated in this section of the posting. We do not regularly check VolunteerMatch for inquiries, so email connection with Heather Morgan is the best next step.**

This opportunity is only suited to individuals with capacity to assist long term. It is not suitable for groups to do on a one-time basis.

APDC offers ESL, GED prep, and Citizenship classes to adult students from around the world. Students who have met residency requirements to apply for citizenship are highly advised to study to prepare for this intense and important interview that affords them the opportunities intrinsic to citizenship. The interview is conducted one-on-one in an office setting and is mostly conversational. Because of this, students benefit enormously from lots of practice with a tutor one-on-one to become accustomed to this format and the questions asked in this unique setting.

WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU: Citizenship tutors would be asked to offer a minimum of one hour weekly to Zoom or in person sessions with one student. Tutors would attend a training before they were in contact with a student due to the complex nature of this application. Once trained, tutors will put their availability on a volunteer schedule and make appointments with students referred to our tutoring program. During your tutoring session, you would help the student work on the aspects of the application they most want help on, acting as the "agent." In person or on Zoom would be determined based on your interest and capacity for either venue matched with student needs.

Citizenship tutors MUST be sympathetic to supporting refugee and immigrant students in this vulnerable move toward a challenging goal. Emotional intelligence, a clear, encouraging manner of engaging with students, and ideally, some understanding of trauma informed care, is essential to this position.

CONTACT: Heather Morgan, heathermorgan@apdc.org. Do not apply on this website: please email Heather Morgan directly.
