Becoming a citizen provides residents with full access to rights in US society. Individuals might qualify for citizenship if they meet certain legal guidelines, such as having legally been in the United States for approximately five years, or if they have lived in the United States for three years, and married a US citizen. Citizenship applicants must also have some familiarity with the English language and a basic knowledge of US history, geography and government in order to pass the naturalization exam. However, some applicants might qualify to take this test in their native language. After completing the process, approved applicants become citizens in about four to six months.
TRP is a partner of the New Americans Initiative, a program of ICIRR, which offers citizenship workshops. If you think that you qualify for US citizenship, please attend one of our citizenship workshops. At the workshop, we meet with each attendee to confirm that they are eligible for citizenship. Then, if you qualify, we will guide you through the application process. Please bring all required documents and information to complete the application.
Check our calendar to see when and where our next citizenship workshop will be occurring. Our workshops are free, and we also offer information on Second Federal’s “Citizenship Loan” to help pay for your citizenship application fee.
If you have any questions about the workshop, please contact Erendira Rendon at 312-880-1151, or email@example.com.
The Resurrection Project seeks trained volunteers to help qualified community members complete their citizenship applications. All of those interested in assisting at one of our workshops must come to a training session, where they will learn how to fill out the citizenship application, known as a N400. At the workshops, volunteers will directly assist community members. Volunteers do not need to be bilingual.
Check our calendar to see when and where our next volunteer training will occur.
If you would like to volunteer at a workshop, please contact Erendira Rendon at 312-880-1151, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
