What have you learned since volunteering with Project Citizenship?
“I’ve learned that there are many individuals and families who have been fortunate to benefit from the good work that Project Citizenship provides. I’ve learned that without the advocacy of Project Citizenship staff and volunteers many are left to navigate a discretionary and disjointed process alone. Project Citizenship and it’s core of volunteers provide support to clients who seek a pathway to citizenship – a benefit which they have earned and deserve. It is vitally important to support Project Citizenship by donating and volunteering so we can expand our reach throughout the Commonwealth and help provide access to citizenship for hundreds more.”
