Blue Ridge Literacy has been chosen as a partner in the PEACE Citizenship program, which is designed to assist Cuban-Americans in their efforts to improve their English skills and to achieve U.S. citizenship. PEACE operates as a part of the state’s Department of Social Services through the “Welcome Newcomers” program. This program is in its 3rd year of reaching out to Cuban immigrants throughout the Commonwealth. Currently, we have 30 learners and meet Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Test your knowledge by taking a practice Citizenship test! If you would like to help lead a class of immigrants or other international learners, help an adult to learn to read or improve their existing English skills or prepare for the Citizenship test, contact Russ Merrrit at 265-9339.
