Citizenship Clinic

Becoming a U.S. citizen is one of the most important and valuable things an immigrant can do – which is why promoting naturalization and helping people apply is a key part of MIRA’s mission.

At our monthly clinics, we guide applicants through the naturalization form, step by step, and let them know if they qualify for a waiver of federal fees. People sign up in advance (usually 20–40, though at this one, our first after the summer break, we expect a larger group), and MIRA’s Citizenship Team, supported by volunteers, go through the process with each applicant, one-on-one.

The clinics include four stations: 1) check-in and registration; 2) screening for eligibility; 3) completing the application; and 4) quality control.

Important: If you’ve never volunteered at one of our clinics before, or haven’t done it for a long time, we’ll need you to come in for a training session on Wednesday, October 18, at 5:30pm, also at the MIRA office.
