Asian Center staff work with immigrants and refugees seeking to gain citizenship by preparing them for their evaluation. Our focus is to ensure that students feel comfortable with all information that will be tested, which has generated great success. For more information on the class, please visit the Asian Center or call (402) 477-3446.
Current Schedule: Wednesdays 2:00pm to 3:00pm
There is also an optional English language class, from 1:00pm to 2:00pm. This class is for beginning language learners, who need extra help preparing for the oral evaluation component of the citizenship test.
Asian Center staff facilitate these classes. This program is open to any member of the Asian community in Lincoln who is looking to improve his or her skills in English. We provide assistance in pronunciation, conversation, reading and writing. For more information on the classes, please visit the Asian Center or call (402) 477-3446.
Current Schedule: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:00pm to 7:30pm
At the Asian Center we try to act as liaisons between the Lincoln community as a whole and the Asian population included within it. It is often difficult for immigrants and refugees to acquire help from social institutions that are in place due to a language barrier. To help individuals overcome this we offer our services in translating important documents from Vietnamese to English and English to Vietnamese. We have several bilingual staff and accept walk-ins.
The Asian Community and Cultural Center is a participating agency in the VITA program which is overseen by the IRS. This program offers free tax preparation, and e-filing if the client chooses. We have a limited staff for this project, so we are only able to accept clients by appointment. If your taxes are waiting to be filed and you don't know what to do, call us at 402-477-3446 for more information. This program takes place in January, February, and March.
