Thank you all for your donations! I'm glad to announce that I'll also be hosting my class at the TX State Capitol this summer (: Woohoo! See More

EVENT DATE Aug 08, 2016

THE STORY:

Hey everyone! My name is Idil Tuysuzoglu, and I am an incoming senior and (very proud) citizenship teacher. I have been helping citizens get naturalized since my freshman year of high school, when I started tutoring a couple of family friends who needed help preparing for the Civics portion of the test. I've been interested in civics/adult education since then, and I stretched my "boundaries" this spring when I hosted my class at the Emerson Community School in Emerson, NJ. Well, now that I look back at it, that wasn't really expanding my "boundaries", considering I'm doing something even crazier this summer. With the help of the UT Student Government Association and the Austin Public Library system, I will be hosting my class at both the University of Texas, Austin and several branches of the APL this summer, from August 8-13. Both locations will have daily lessons, one hour each, that focus on the basics of US History, government, and geography. I'm finalizing plans with other institutions as well, so this certainly won't be it! That being said, I hope all of you know that "everything is bigger in Texas". Food, livestock, land, TRIP EXPENSES, you name it. This is why I need your help! Any donation you make, big or small, will go towards the fund for my trip (airfare, hotel, food, and transportation). So please, consider making a donation!
