Civic Engagement project is funded by the Office of Minority Health and Refugee Affairs through the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services and Eastern Bank. Teachers educate adult students about American History, Civics, and English using culturally appropriate methods. This is one of the critical programs for local integration and naturalization. Teachers also help students improve their verbal and written communication skills.
Overall, 300 students have registered for this program 250 of which have graduated to date. Currently, 30 students continue to participate and reap the program’s benefits. Classes are scheduled three days a week.
BCNH has been a well-utilized service hub for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Support assistance. More than 3000 New Americans have benefited from application assistance, transportation, and interpretation support. Currently, we are operating three Civic Education classes per week including weekends. These classes help individuals improve their English, prepare for job readiness, and prepare permanent residents who are planning to take the English and Citizenship tests to become naturalized citizens.
