The Public Law Center invites you to be part of our naturalization project by volunteering your time as a legal or non-legal volunteer at our upcoming Mega Citizenship Fair. Legal volunteers will help clients prepare citizenship applications, while non-legal volunteers will provide interpretation. Your assistance will provide clients with a sense of confidence about applying for naturalization.
What is a legal volunteer? A legal volunteer is an attorney, law student, paralegal, or DOJ accredited representative.
Interpreters must be 18 years or older, be fluent in English and Spanish, and be able to communicate in a clear and concise manner.
There will be a joint training for legal and non-legal volunteers participating at our naturalization fair in September 2019.
