This two-day training provides a complete overview of how to start and sustain a nonprofit immigration legal services program. It features a manual and curriculum that offers detailed information and suggestions for applying for Board of Immigration Appeals agency recognition and staff accreditation, implementing effective case management systems, fundraising and scores of other pertinent topics related to managing an immigration program. 

Participants will learn how to determine which applications to accept and how to adjust fees to obtain the best support for their program. There will be a discussion of case intake and management strategies, avoiding unauthorized practice of law, and strategies for working with the funders and delivering on grant objectives.

The training is highly interactive. Participants will leave with a plan to create or improve immigration legal services. Past participants have used information from this training to build or expand their legal immigration capacity.

The training is suitable 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 training will be presented by Michelle Sardone, BIA Fully Accredited Representative and Jack Holmgren, Attorney, both of whom work at CLINIC’S Center for Citizenship and Immigrant Communities as Field Service Coordinators. 

The training is for the staff of Catholic agencies and other community-based organizations with IRS 501(c)(3) status, and attorneys and legal worker staff of private law offices. If you are registering as staff of a community-based organization, fax a copy of your IRS 501(c)(3) letter designating your agency as a nonprofit entity to CLINIC at (415) 394-8986 to the attention of Jack Holmgren. Your registration will be confirmed upon receipt of this letter and your payment through the website by credit card only. No checks or cash accepted for payment.

Space is limited to 30 participants. The registration deadline is July 20, 2012 or sooner if registration is full. For registration information call Jack Holmgren at (415) 394-8074.
