NYCitizenship in Schools, Saturday, February 8, at Sunset Park High School

posted Jan 16, 2014, 6:38 AM by Sylwia Jasinski

In the 2012-13 school year, , the NYCitizenship in Schools program helped close to 800 parents complete their U.S. citizenship applications and begin the process of becoming U.S. citizens. As we move forward, we would like your help in sharing this opportunity with parents in your community.

The next event will be on Saturday, February 8, at Sunset Park High School (153 35th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11232) for parents eligible to naturalize. We need your help reaching parents with this information and we are hoping you could assist us.

By helping the parents in your community naturalize, their children may derive citizenship at no additional cost if they are under the age of 18 and meet certain requirements. For children that become U.S. Citizens, there are additional opportunities for scholarships, financial aid, and student loans as they apply for college. There is also a micro-loan opportunity with free financial counseling available to help parents who cannot afford the $680 United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) filing fee or who do not qualify for the fee waiver. 

Only parents that are eligible to naturalize can attend this service event. Also attached are the eligibility requirements checklist.

Thank you for your assistance in sharing this opportunity, and please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Please feel free to contact me via email or by phone at 212-788-9792.

Thank you,


Zerlina Chiu
