New Citizenship Initiative for Older Refugees Launches

Our new citizenship initiative for older refugees has launched! The course emphasizes the skills necessary to pass the US citizenship exam, combined with activities such as arts & crafts, exercise and gardening. The initiative addresses an important need: after 7 years of residency in the US, immigrants who have not become US citizens can lose eligibility for public assistance. Because older refugees tend to have more barriers to learning, such as language, literacy level, and culture, the class offers native language interpretation, social interaction, and a supportive environment.

Over 80 people attained citizenship through ILC’s citizenship class last year. We are one of only 3 USBIA accredited sites in Milwaukee. Additional citizenship classes are offered at our 25th street site on Tuesdays 8:30 and 10:30 and Wednesdays evenings at 5:30.
