On July 13th, 2016, the IRC office in Miami celebrated the successful completion of citizenship classes with a graduation ceremony. The 65 future new Americans hailed from six different countries, including Colombia, Venezuela, Cuba and other nations from around the globe. The heartwarming celebration was enjoyed by students, IRC staff, volunteers and guests, who gathered for this momentous occasion to enjoy good food and conversation. A big thank you to Community Medical Group, the major sponsor of the event, who graciously provided food and refreshments.
The IRC in Miami is committed to assisting those seeking a path towards citizenship by providing classes in the evenings and even off-site to reach a wider group of people in the South Florida Community. The office looks forward to holding more classes and many more graduation events in the near future!
