TEACH Citizenship Club 

We are starting a new "club" for TEACH 
students interested in learning more 
about the U.S. Citizenship process. 

We will meet for 3 sessions this summer 
on Zoom to discuss the naturalization
process, including the citizenship 
interview and test. 

All students are welcome, from those 
who might consider citizenship in 
the future to those currently preparing.

Students and tutors once gathered 
in the Sisters of St. Joseph's 
"School on Wheels" bus. Today, they 
work together at one of the 
TEACH locations in Cook, 
DuPage, and Will counties.
Learning English isn’t the only 
goal of our TEACH students. 
They also have goals of becoming 
American citizens which are 
attained with the help and 
encouragement of their tutors.
A tutor encourages his student 
to identify the continents on 
the globe. English is the only 
language spoken during tutoring 
sessions.
Workbooks and worksheets are 
used to help students learn the 
English language. Some exercises 
require students to create stories 
from pictures.
Reaching out to the community, 
TEACH offers classes to companies 
and their employees. These classes 
are offered after-hours at 
an employee’s workplace and 
at 17 local facilities.

 

Rooted in the Congregation of St. Joseph's founding values of promoting inclusion, unity, and equity, 
     TEACH works to enrich the quality of life of all immigrants so that they may actively participate in and contribute to their communities. 

Through free individualized instruction, mentoring, and support, 
     TEACH empowers adult learners to build their strengths and develop confident voices, enabling them to advocate for themselves, and their families in all dimensions of life.

 

TEACH reaches 48 communities in Western Cook, DuPage, and Will counties.
