Citizenship Initiative

Summer 2019 Free Citizenship Classes

This summer, the Museum is offering a free program to help permanent residents prepare for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services naturalization exam.

In a series of interactive classes using historical objects, paintings and stories showcased in the Museum, museum educators will teach the history and civics sections of the Citizenship Test.

The course includes a special Citizenship Information session presented by representatives from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, HIAS/PA, and Nationalities Service Center. These partner organizations will offer helpful resources on the application process, eligibility screening and the personal interview.

The course takes place at the Museum of the American Revolution on Monday and Wednesday evenings, 5:30-8:30 PM, from July 15 – August 7, 2019.

All graduates of the Citizenship Initiative will receive a Museum of the American Revolution certificate and Family Ticket to the Museum (two adults and two children).

Advance registration required. Space is limited and early registration is encouraged. This course is appropriate for those considering taking the U.S. Citizenship Test. Classes will be accessible for intermediate-level English language learners.
