Volunteers Needed!

Making the decision to become a U.S. citizen is one of the most important decisions in an individuals life. Many on the pathway to citizenship are afraid to reach out,do not know who to reach out to, or cannot afford to reach out. In those moments, you can shine a beam of light. You can play an important role by volunteering to assist others to become U.S. citizens and participate in our democracy.

You’ll be working with some of the best volunteers and attorneys, who’ll be assisting with basics like – registering applicants, ushering, assisting with filling forms, getting needed documents together, to legal consultation with an immigration attorney, completing N-400 naturalization application forms, and fee waiver forms.


If you’ve been looking for a way to play a bigger part in the community, the Citizenship Workshop is where you need to be.
