Virtual Citizenship Workshop
Volunteer Registration for June 8, 2021
What is a workshop?
A workshop is where clients, screened as eligible to apply for citizenship by Project Citizenship, complete their citizenship application with trained volunteers. Rather than using staff to meet with clients one-on-one, this model allows us to serve many clients and engage volunteers in the citizenship process! At a virtual workshop, with your help as a volunteer, we assist between 15 and 35 clients with their applications.
What am I committing to?
Registering means you are committing to watching a one-hour training (if it’s your first time volunteering) and attending the two-hour workshop (Tuesday, June 8, 12:45PM to 2:45PM EST). As an application assistance volunteer, you’ll be paired with a pre-screened client in a Zoom breakout room, where you’ll help them fill out their citizenship application. Project Citizenship staff will be available throughout the entire workshop to answer questions. When your time with the client ends, you will transfer the completed application to a volunteer attorney, who will take over the appointment and review the materials.
After registering, the confirmation page links to the mandatory, one-hour training to watch for first-time volunteers. You will receive a calendar invite with important workshop logistics, another link to the training, and contact information for any questions or if you need to cancel.
