The Citizenship Project

Tuesday, November 02, 2021

The Citizenship Project is a major initiative to help the thousands of immigrants in Indiana who are eligible for U.S. citizenship each year. Through this free civics and history program, the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site offers a unique avenue for addressing the growing demand of naturalization applications. By using art and objects to put American history in context, The Citizenship Project creates a personal and dynamic educational experience beyond pure memorization.

FREE CLASSES FOR GREEN CARD HOLDERS

Led by our expert museum educators, civics and history classes are available to help green card holders prepare for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services naturalization exam. Through this specially designed six-week program at the Presidential Site, participants learn about pivotal moments in U.S. history by examining objects and documents from our collections.

REGISTER TODAY FOR THE NOV. 2 TO DEC. 16 SESSION!

CAN’T MAKE IT THIS WINTER? 2022 SPRING DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED.

To learn more about this 6 week program that takes place twice a week contact our Education Department at education@bhpsite.org or at 317.631.1888.

The Citizenship Project is a free educational program by the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site in conjunction with the New York Historical Society helping prospective U.S. citizens learn more about the American system of self-government.
