Training Level: Introductory

This is an overview of best practices for program management of a charitable legal immigration services program. This course is appropriate for program staff from a wide range of organizations, including established immigration programs, ethnic and immigrant organizations, domestic violence and sexual assault coalitions and service providers, unions, social services and medical providers, and educational programs (ESL and Citizenship).

The trainers for this course are members of CLINIC’s Capacity Building section: Jeff Chenoweth (Section Director); Laura Burdick, Nathaly Perez and Helen Chen (Field Support Coordinators); and Silvana Arista (OVW Project Attorney).  For questions about the course content, please contact Nathaly Perez (nperez@cliniclegal.org).

The course opens on October 11th with access to the e-learning course website and week one assignment. The course includes four webinars, with an optional fifth webinar, conducted on consecutive Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m. Eastern starting on October 18th.  Each webinar lasts approximately 90 minutes, and it is recorded and posted on the course website after the webinar is conducted. Although we encourage participants to attend the live webinars each week, you will be able to listen to and view a recording of any webinar you are unable to attend whenever you choose to do so.

Course Completion Requirements:  Course participants will receive a course completion certificate if they (a) attend or view recordings of the weekly course webinar and (b) complete each weekly course quiz.   You have up to two weeks after the last live webinar in the course to meet these requirements.
