Preparing for U.S. Citizenship: How Libraries, Service Organizations & Educators Can Support Permanent Residents on their Path to Citizenship


Adult Educators, ESOL teachers and skilled volunteers play a critical role in helping immigrants prepare for U.S. citizenship. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program and the Fletcher Free Library of Burlington VT will discuss their role in providing permanent residents with the education and information needed to become a citizen, including passing the citizenship test, and finding best resources to achieve this. Participants will leave with an understanding of the services they can provide to their immigrant communities and specific ways to get involved in supporting immigrants on their path to U.S. citizenship.
