ORGANIZATION: CITIZENSHIP COALITION

Image_202405080541

We are a new organization seeking volunteer tutors to work with immigrants taking the U.S. citizenship test. All tutoring is done remotely. You can arrange tutoring sessions at mutually convenient times with your citizenship applicant. Training involves reading a tutor handbook and attending an orientation session led by a team member. Volunteers can get additional training and guidance on tutoring as needed. To apply, please sign up at this link: https://forms.gle/ZoYtXNnFCMuohUhy9

You don’t need prior experience with any kind of tutoring or any knowledge of the naturalization process. We will teach you everything you need to know and provide all the materials needed for tutoring. And you will have a volunteer coordinator available to answer any questions at any point. More than 90 percent of applicants pass the USCIS citizenship test. In most cases, immigrants facing the test need just a little review of the questions they will be asked and some encouragement. The USCIS test can be quite intimidating for many, and one of the most important aspects of tutoring is simply being a source of warmth and support for immigrants taking a major step in their lives.

The time commitment is flexible. Tutoring engagements vary in terms of frequency and duration. But generally volunteer tutors will meet for one or two hours per week with their citizenship applicants, who tend to access tutoring in the weeks and months prior to their USCIS appointment. However, volunteers who want to be more active can do so by working with more than one person preparing for the test. Please indicate in the form how much you would like to volunteer, and a coordinator will work with you on a schedule.

A coordinator will contact you once you submit a form to arrange an initial call. Our organization is in the early phase of launching. We are gathering and training a team of volunteers who can expect to be working with immigrants applying for citizenship in the near future.

Mission Statement

The Citizenship Coalition provides free tutoring to immigrants applying for American citizenship, which requires an interview and test by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. We stand as allies to immigrants from all corners of the world hoping to make America their new home.

Description

Our volunteer tutors help immigrants applying for U.S. citizenship by meeting with them remotely using phones and computers. We explain everything someone needs to know for their USCIS interview and help them practice for the big day. Any immigrant working with us can get as much or as little tutoring as they need at no cost on a flexible schedule to help them prepare for this final step in the naturalization process.
