FREE CLASSES FOR GREEN CARD HOLDERS
Beginning summer 2017, free civics and history classes are available to help green card holders prepare for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services naturalization exam. Courses take place on-site at the New-York Historical Society at three different times—Saturdays, weekday evenings, and weekday mornings—so participants can choose the class structure that best suits their work and home life. Through these courses, made possible by generous grants from the Ford Foundation and Mellon Foundation, participants will learn about pivotal moments in U.S. history by examining objects and documents from our collections.
