The Bender JCC is pleased to once again offer U.S. Citizenship classes. The 10-week session will be held once a week in person at the Bender JCC.

Classes will focus on the ability to understand and answer the questions at the Naturalization Interview. The class will be taught by our very popular and experienced teacher John Schmelzer. Through the program you will learn about U.S. history, the structure of the government, and civics. Students will practice answering the questions on the Application for Naturalization, Form N-400 and questions asked in the citizenship interview. All instructional materials will be provided.

Please note to be eligible for this class a student must:

  • Be able to speak and understand English (your English does not need to be perfect).
  • Read and write a simple sentence in English (your spelling does not need to be perfect).
  • Have had your Permanent Resident Card (green card) for at least 3 years.
