Citizenship Workshop in San Jose
The International Rescue Committee in San Jose will be collaborating with other Santa Clara County refugee and immigrant service providers to host a Citizenship Workshop on Thursday, February 28th from 3 to 8 pm, an event for group application and processing. The IRC is taking initiative to encourage refugees and asylees to fully join their community in the U.S. The collaborative goal is to serve 200 to 300 clients, and raise awareness for other programs such as civics classes and immigration work.
We are looking for volunteers to assist with intake and eligibility screening, quality control, and direct application work. This is an excellent opportunity for law students or community members interested in learning more about the naturalization process. You will also have a direct, positive impact on helping refugees and asylees fully integrate as citizens of the U.S.
No experience is necessary; a two-hour training will be provided on Saturday, February 16th or Thursday, February 21st. The minimum time commitment for the day of the event is 2.5 hours, from 2:45 to 5:15 pm or 5:15 to 7:45 pm.
Please email our volunteer coordintator at Catherine.Ngo@rescue.org to confirm your availability and/or for more information.
