Preparing for the citizenship interview and passing the citizenship test is the goal of the Hispanic Center’s Citizenship Program. We make sure students know U.S. history, government, the Constitution, civics questions, dictated written questions, and questions in the N-400. Citizenship classes meet once a week and classes are ten weeks long. The core of the program is civic participation in community.
A Multicultural Center Success
Originally from Venezuela, Doña Maria Delfin immigrated to United States sixteen years ago. In order to help better acculturate to her new home, she sought guidance from the Hispanic Center of Danbury. In recent years, she has enrolled in our Acculturation & Civic Engagement Program as well as our Citizenship classes. While her first attempt was unsuccessful, the 75 years young Dona Delfin was determined and this past September again sat to take the citizenship test and we are proud to announce that she is our newest U.S. citizen addition in Danbury.
“The Hispanic Center is a place for people who want to excel in their
education. The Hispanic Center provides not only classes but they help
in anything the person needs. The staff is very friendly, helpful and
heartwarming. I am very grateful and thank all the staff for helping and
providing me with their services. Thanks to them I have been able to take
citizenship classes, computer classes and ESL classes. They have treated
me like I’m part of their family and I feel very happy with all of them and
the services they provide. Thank you Hispanic Center.”
