Red Cross to offer U.S. citizenship seminar, class in Savannah

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

If you're an immigrant and ready to upgrade your status to become a full U.S. citizen, the Savannah Red Cross will host a "How to Become a U.S. Citizen" seminar. 

The seminar will be held Mar. 9 from 6 until 8 p.m. at the American Red Cross Chapter, 41 Park of Commerce Way in Savannah. 

The Savannah Chapter of the American Red Cross will also offer a "Preparing for Citizenship" Class for immigrants wishing to prepare for their U.S. Citizenship test and interview. The class will run for six consecutive Saturdays, beginning on Mar. 16 from 9:30 a.m. until 12:45 p.m., at the Southwest Chatham Branch of the Live Oak Public Library, 14097 Abercorn St. The class will conclude on April 28. 

The "Preparing for Citizenship" class will focus on U.S. Civics and History to prepare immigrants for the Citizenship Test and help them get ready for the interview. The fee for this class is $50, however, the first 50 participants will pay only a $10 administration fee. The class will be filled on a first come first serve basis and seating is limited.  

The Red Cross would like to encourage all permanent resident aliens, refugees and asylees who have official status with the U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and are on a path to citizenship to take the new Red Cross "Preparing for Citizenship" Class.
