You can help a refugee from a war-torn country or oppressive government reach their most desired goal - TO BE AN AMERICAN CITIZEN. Our volunteers help provide the one-on-one English and Civics instruction necessary to pass the citizenship exam. You do NOT have to speak any language other than English and do not need any prior teaching experience. It only takes an hour or two per week.
The legal residents we serve have not been able to benefit from classroom instruction, are often homebound, and are not very familiar with US culture and laws. Your involvement will make them feel better understood and more connected to their new community. Your patience and kindness will leave a lasting memory, an improved ability to communicate, and greater independence.Most of our clients reside in South St. Louis and South County; however, we also have clients in University City and Chesterfield.
