Growing Readers

Fort Morgan is a special place. We love its size, safety, and opportunities. We know the key to maintaining a thriving community is to grow talented youth. And, we know the key to growing talented youth is making sure every child starts kindergarten fully prepared to learn. In fact, children who enter school with early literacy skills are more likely than their peers to experience later academic success, attain higher levels of education, and secure employment.

Therefore, our goal is to ensure every Fort Morgan child enters kindergarten motivated and ready to learn. We can support this by providing every four-year-old with a personal home library of at least 100 books and encouraging them to develop a daily habit of reading.

Together, we can grow our next generation of leaders. In 2019, we raised $60,575 from 40 supporters, helping Fort Morgan become a model city where every child has their own home library and daily habit of reading.

Citizenship Pathway Resources

OMC offers low-cost citizenship classes and credible information on immigration-related topics. Quarterly classes help immigrants file naturalization applications, practice for naturalization interviews, and prepare for the citizenship test. (Enrollment averages about 10 participants per class.)

Time Requirements

Citizenship classes run for ten (10) weeks at two (2) hours each class. Classes are typically scheduled on a Saturday in the morning.

Meeting Place

Citizenship classes are typically held at the Immigrant Law Center of Northeast Colorado in the conference room.

Volunteering Opportunities

Be sure to ask about current class dates, times, and location if interested in volunteering. Volunteers may commit to as little or as much time as they would like. Volunteers will independently keep track of volunteer hours and will be responsible for reporting hours to OMC each month.
