Enrich your life and your understanding of other cultures by helping newcomers to the Littleton community. There are numerous volunteer opportunities available. We invite you to join us on this journey toward a more culturally diverse community!
All community members, newcomers or long-term residents, are welcome to become involved in the Littleton Immigrant Resources Center (LIRC). There are many ways you can participate.
Language Partners Program
Language Partners mentors help students improve their spoken and written English. This one-on-one program matches students with volunteers. These volunteers meet at a mutually agreed upon time in a public place, usually Bemis Public Library. Usually, these volunteers meet with their students for 1-2 hours per week for approximately 6 months. Volunteers are trained on teaching techniques and the LIRC curriculum. They also may work with students on specific vocabulary they might need such as employment applications and job interviews.

To become a citizen of the United States, legal permanent residents are required to pass an exam that tests their knowledge of the English language and U.S. history and civics. Citizenship mentors help immigrants prepare for their citizenship examination. Once volunteers are trained on LIRC’s curriculum, they can assist with one-on-one mentoring or our small group citizenship classes.

Immigration Resources Center Volunteers
LIRC is always looking for people to help in the resources center. These volunteers do a little bit of everything. They help answer immigrant and volunteer questions, answer phones, do data entry, or any other project that comes up.
We are always looking for people to educate the community about the Littleton Immigrant Resources Center. Please contact us if you are interested in hosting a gathering of community residents at your organization, workplace, or home. We will come to talk about our work and the strengths and challenges that growing diversity brings to our community.
