Naturalization Ceremonies Volunteer

Global Cleveland needs your help welcoming our newest American citizens on what is one of the most important days of their lives. Three times a month, Global Cleveland sends representatives to the naturalization ceremonies to hand out welcome packets, and collect information on our newest American citizens. Ceremonies are typically held at the Carl B. Stokes U.S. Court House in the Jury Assembly Room on Level L1 and dates for 2018 ceremonies can be found below.

Community Navigators

Global Cleveland’s newest volunteer opportunity trains and certifies you to become a Community Navigator that helps members of ethnic communities understand their rights and learn about the path to citizenship. Once per month, Global Cleveland will host day-long trainings on a Saturday for up to 8 volunteers. Volunteers will then be able to host their own training sessions, initiate their own community outreach and work one on one with those applying for naturalization. This is a great longer-term commitment volunteer opportunity! Please email for more information!
