Event Date and Time
CARECEN DC, 1460 Columbia Road NW, Suite C-1, Washington, DC 20009

Join the University of Maryland College of Behavioral and Social Sciences Alumni Chapter Board on Saturday, December 16, 2017 as we assist members of the greater Washington Metropolitan community to become US Citizens. We will be conducting Mock Citizenship Interviews at the Central American Resource Center (CARECEN DC).

CARECEN DC is a non-profit organization in Columbia Heights that provides legal services, housing services, citizenship classes, and economic empowerment to foster the development of the Latino community in the Greater Washington metropolitan region

Volunteer training will be provided at the beginning of the program. The purpose of this service is to simulate the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) experience. USCIS adjudicators often ask questions to the supervising officer, so volunteers will also be able to ask us questions throughout the interviews, should they have any.  Please note that Spanish is not needed to serve as a volunteer, but a plus! Note: service opportunity should last 3 hours, to start at 10 a.m. and conclude by 1 p.m.

Please Register by Wednesday, December 13, 2017
