What do you call the first 10 amendments to the Constitution? What is the “rule of law”? Who is the Commander-in-Chief of the military?
These are just a sample of the 100 civics questions that refugees and immigrants pursuing U.S. citizenship might be asked during their naturalization test. Catholic Charities offers a free Citizenship Preparation Program that includes two levels of course work focused on the English language, American history and civics knowledge needed to pass the naturalization interview and exam. Assistance with the citizenship application is also available.
Due to class sizes, volunteer tutors are always a welcome addition to the classroom. Tutors work with small groups of adults helping them learn relevant content in a fun, engaging atmosphere. Classes are offered in the morning, afternoon and evening.
