Citizenship Promotion & Assistance Program

To prepare Latinos for citizenship, MFVEF will hold naturalization workshops and leadership trainings to help new citizens participate fully in American democratic society. MFVEF utilizes a proven successful group processing workshop model to assist hundreds of eligible individuals with their N-400 application at a time. This model also utilizes the pro-bono assistance from legal and nonlegal volunteers and expedites the process for those non-complex applicants who due to cost or personal/language barriers have not yet applied for citizenship.

Population(s) Served
People of Latin American descent
Economically disadvantaged people

MFVEF targets low propensity Latino voters in the states and cities where we have a presence and where Latino communities are underrepresented in electoral participation. Through the creative use of social media, text messaging, and a broad site-based canvassing effort, MFVEF converts occasional voters into frequent voters after providing information on the electoral process and a persuasive invitation to vote.

Population(s) Served
People of Latin American descent

MFVEF’s Emerging Latino Leader program is designed to prepare and cultivate young Latino/as who are 17-24 years old as agents of change through a service-focused strategy that blends leadership development with continuous civic engagement opportunities. The program is targeted to students at high schools or higher education institutions to develop them into Youth Engagement Leads who would build Latino youth advocates within their communities and create civic opportunities in their schools. To prepare Latino youth for a lifetime of civic involvement – including voter education, GOTV efforts, policy advocacy, and citizenship – the program incorporates community organizing workshops featuring interactive activities designed to develop advocacy and deliberative skills. MFVEF allows Latino youth leaders to emerge as advocates for their families and communities by engaging in service learning projects including their own issue-based civic engagement project and encourage students to share their perspectives and stories with the media.
