Anyone who is eligible to become a United States citizen is welcome to join our Citizenship Study Group. There is no cost to participate as the program is funded by the generosity of donors. The Y provides the forms and study materials from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and includes in the program basic English lessons for reading and writing, civics, and history. Participants also have the opportunity to practice the interview process.
YMCA of Bucks and Hunterdon Counties recognizes the need for a United States Citizenship study group in the community. Under the direction of the Y’s bilingual program coordinator, the Y launched a pilot program in July 2011 and began offering the study program as a regular community community offering in September 2011.
The study group meets every Wednesday from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM via Zoom.
