The IIIC’s next six week U.S. Citizenship class begins on February 7th and we are still accepting students! Contact the Center today to register for either the afternoon or evening session.
Preparing for the U.S. Citizenship test and interview can be a daunting task so let us help you. The IIIC’s expert staff members are well versed; covering all of the broad and varied information contained in the 100 possible exam questions. Whether you’ve spent just enough time in the States to be eligible for Citizenship or you’ve lived here for years, the class will benefit you.
Former students have praised both the teachers and the curriculum for providing them with a solid preparatory foundation that gave them extra confidence going into their interviews.
IIIC staff members also take the time to discuss civic engagement with the class and encourage students to take an active role in their communities. Benefits of U.S. Citizenship include no restrictions on travel outside the United States, the right to vote, the chance to sponsor family members to come to the U.S., the opportunity to run for political office, and many other potential benefits.
The IIIC’s Citizenship staff is also happy to assist students with the 10 page U.S. Citizenship application and to answer any questions they might have about the process.
The next class will run for six weeks on Thursdays beginning February 7th. Afternoon sessions run from 1pm - 3pm and evenings from 6pm-8pm. To learn more about the class or to register, please call (617) 542-7654.See more: Irish in Boston , Irish American , Irish Immigration Center
