Volunteer Opportunities—LUM Immigration Clinic—Citizenship Classes

LUM Immigration Clinic is seeking additional volunteers to help pass out materials, engage students regarding discussion topics, and review vocabulary & civics questions in preparation for the naturalization interview. LUM is also seeking individuals/groups who might be willing to interact with students to provide refreshments during one or more of the classes. This is a great opportunity for church or civic groups to learn more about the naturalization process and to meet future citizens. Finally volunteers are needed to teach the next five-week session of classes which is tentatively scheduled to begin in October 2015. If interested you’re encouraged to attend and observe one of the August-September classes.
