CLINIC invites refugee service providers to attend a free, web-based conference call training, "The Civic Engagement of Older Refugees." In this 1 1/2 hour, interactive session, Project SHINE – an initiative of Temple University’s Center for Intergenerational Learning – will present the findings from a recent study that looked at why and how older immigrants and refugees contribute to their families and communities. They will share their insights into promising practices for supporting the engagement of immigrant and refugee elders in meaningful roles in the community and examples of what others around the country are doing.
While staff is the heart of an immigration program, several other resources are required to keep a program functioning. These include: physical space, computers, software, law library materials, and malpractice insurance. In this second of a seven-part webinar series on immigration program management, the presenter will discuss the different resources needed to support a immigration legal services program.
How do you create support to expand your charitable immigration program? How do you help your agency director and board of directors better understand the need for charitable legal immigration services? How do you become a catalyst for legalization planning before a bill passes?
