This content rich, two-day training is focused on strategic program management and capacity development topics. The curriculum combines planning for possible administrative relief reforms by The White House with elements of CLINIC’s highly praised Immigration Program Management training, expanded for more advanced learning opportunities.  The training will draw from these advanced areas:

►Forms of administrative relief possibly offered by The White House, timelines for implementation at the national and local levels and what CLINIC is doing on the advocacy front for comprehensive immigration reform.

► Leadership and donor cultivation skills to build greater internal and external support for program planning and expansion, focusing on administrative relief implementation.

►Technology uses for greater marketing, client contact, case management and evaluation including: social media; web-based client interaction tools; and integrated management and legal representation data bases.

►Measuring program outcomes for fundraising and marketing effectiveness.  Participants will learn how to turn data points into compelling stories to gain stakeholder support in the forms of money and human resources.

►Different service delivery models to serve vulnerable populations and large numbers of applicants at the same time.  Special attention will be given to different group application workshop models.

►Open forum for participants to raise issues, ask questions and share good practices with each other.

►Individual and small group consultations with CLINIC staff on program-specific AR plans.  Attendees are encouraged to bring written AR implementation plans if possible to gain more feedback from CLINIC staff.  CLINIC’s affiliates can access a CIR/AR planning outline at the link below.  All attendees will be given a planning outline during the December 2 and 3 training.
