This two-day training is focused on strategic program management and capacity development topics. The curriculum will include planning activities for comprehensive immigration reform along with elements of CLINIC’s highly praised Immigration Program Management training, extended for more advanced learning opportunities.  The training will draw from these advanced areas:

►Planning in advance for implementing comprehensive immigration reform. Participants will be asked to analyze how they plan to respond to a sharp increase in demand of clients applying for immigration benefits after the passage of new legislation. Discussion will also include how to prepare leadership, funders, and the community for changes in service provision and the need for additional support and resources.

►Case management policies, procedures, and forms. Participants will be asked to bring their case management forms to the training for a thorough review of forms in use and assess them against best practices. Attention will be given to developing policies and procedures that can accommodate a higher client demand sure to come after comprehensive immigration law is passed.

►Program management challenges and ethical dilemmas with proposed solutions. Participants will learn from actual and hypothetical cases and share their own experiences. 

►Measuring program outcomes for fundraising and marketing effectiveness.  Participants will learn a logic model and apply it to designing a project and spotlighting outcomes which are attractive to many funders. Participants will also learn how to use the likelihood of new legislation in funding proposals, community events, and other marketing arenas to garner additional support for the immigration program.

►Group application workshop models with consideration of current uses in addition to prospective use for unexpected changes in immigration law or policy. Each participant will practice the workshop model and create a workshop plan for her or his program.

►Open forum for participants to raise issues, ask questions and share good practices that are replicable.

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, CLINIC’s Legalization Director, Leya Speasmaker, CLINIC’s Field Support Coordinator, and Silvana Arista, CLINIC’s Project Director.
