Naturalization Pro Bono Project


The Naturalization Pro Bono Project supports the Immigration Institute of the Bay Area’s (“IIBA’s”) Citizenship Classes students in preparing for their interviews for their citizenship and naturalization process. Participants will work one-on-one with IIBA students and conduct thorough mock interviews to help students prepare. The preparation will involve having the interviewees recite their answers to questions on the N-400 form, working with students to improve their English reading, writing and comprehension skills, and reviewing U.S. civics questions.
