High school students, here’s a great opportunity for you to help members of our community. JFCS is partnering with the San Francisco Pathways to Citizenship Initiative to help San Francisco residents who want to become citizens fill out the necessary paperwork. Parents, teachers, and other adults are also welcome.
High School volunteers are needed to help with:
- Registering applicants
- Managing traffic flow
- Working side by side with applicants as they fill out forms
Additionally, for those of you who speak Russian, Spanish, Cantonese, and/or Mandarin, your help with translation services would be most welcome!
What makes this a great volunteer activity?
- You receive service learning credit at your high school.
- You’ll be providing direct help to people who need it.
- You learn about immigration and citizenship.
- You get free lunch and snacks.
- You can wear jeans and sneakers!
