Summer is here and you are looking to take a citizenship class while kids are at camp. CARECEN is proud to be the only community based organization in the District of Columbia that offers citizenship classes in the summer, between July 8 and September 27 (12 weeks). For that reason, classes fill up quickly, so don’t wait to sign up!
You can now register any day Monday through Friday, between 9 AM and 4 PM. Registration will remain open until the first day of class or until there is no more space. Classes are offered on weeknights and weekends to accommodate busy schedules of working adults. This summer, in addition to our regular schedule, we opened a class at the Takoma Park Neighborhood Library, on Sundays afternoons.
Each student will enroll in two weekly classes: a two hour civics class, and a two hour civics-focused ESL class. We also offer a civics class in Spanish for those eligible, offered on Saturday mornings. As always, our students will use technology during a weekly computer lab, and practice both civics and English for the citizenship exam, while gaining computer skills. We will also incorporate field trips and opportunities to engage in the local community and democracy.
Lawful Permanent Residents can register by visiting our offices located at 1460 Columbia Road NW, Suite C-1, Washington, DC 20009, in the above mentioned schedule, with their green card. Those interested to enroll will fill out a registration form, take an English assessment test, pay the $50 tuition fee and receive the textbooks and other study materials provided by USCIS.
