LUM Citizenship Classes – Preparation Has Begun
Fall Session Starts Tuesday, September 4
The LUM Immigration Clinic in collaboration with Lafayette Adult Resource Academy will offer free Citizenship Classes for persons interested in learning more about US history and government. Fall session classes begin on September 4, and are held twice a week until October 4. LUM Citizenship Classes are coordinated by Karen Countryman with assistance from Scott Frankenberger.
Karen & Scott met with the volunteer teachers for the LUM Citizenship Classes this week to prepare the curriculum. The James F. Ackerman Center for Democratic Citizenship at Purdue University donated textbooks, maps & teacher’s manual and also assists with developing the framework for the lesson plans. This program could not be offered without these talented volunteer teachers. Volunteers are needed to teach and bring refreshments. Spanish speaking volunteers are especially needed.
LUM is grateful for the partnership with LARA and the Ackerman Center. For more information about how to volunteer, click HERE.
