For those not born in the United States, the process of becoming a citizen is a very complicated task! It is our hope to walk with newcomers, and assist them with both test preparation and in completing the necessary documents to apply. Taught by Valparaiso University Law Professor, Bruce Berner, and Valparaiso University Education Department Professor, Perry Riffel, we offer a high quality class that fully prepares our students to pass the Naturalization Exam. ¬†Over the years, we’ve supported almost 30 individuals in their efforts to become a US Citizen!

Meet Horacio! Not only is Horacio our longest serving Adult English Class volunteer, but he also completed our US Citizenship class in the spring of 2016, and was sworn in as a US Citizen in the summer. He even served at a polling location on Election Day 2016!
