Volunteers are needed to meet with clients who are eligible for citizenship for 2 hours once a week or during the citizenship class (2 hours). Volunteers will be paired individually with students of KRM's citizenship classes to study material for the citizenship exam, conduct mock citizenship interviews and practice speaking English.Volunteer Impact: Clients who are enrolled in citizenship classes many times do not have the language skills necessary to pass their test to become a U.S. citizen. Volunteers might have to help them learn how to read and write in English and also converse with them, which helps the clients grasp the knowledge necessary for understanding the questions asked on the test. After clients understand English a little better, volunteers can help prepare them for the test more directly by asking the clients questions that would be asked in the interview. This one-on-one attention helps take the pressure off of the citizenship teacher and also gives the client a little more confidence.
