Volunteer with Project Citizenship

Volunteer and pro bono service increases our capacity to serve immigrants, keeps our organization cost-efficient, and involves community members in the transformative process of citizenship.

By volunteering, you get hands-on experience and training from citizenship experts and connect with diverse immigrants from across the globe. Attorneys and law students can fulfill pro bono requirements. Most importantly, you give back to immigrant communities by helping overcome barriers to naturalization.

Looking to get your firm or company involved? Contact us at volunteer@projectcitizenship.org.

Registration is now open for 2023 Boston Citizenship Day! In collaboration with the City of Boston, join us for New England’s largest citizenship workshop on Saturday, April 1 at the Reggie Lewis Center.
