This content rich, two-day training is focused on strategic program management and capacity development topics. The curriculum will include planning for "on the horizon" issues such as possible administrative relief reforms by The White House, comprehensive immigration reform, DACA along 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:

► Leadership cultivation skills to build greater internal and external support for program planning and expansion.

►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 create more professionalism and efficiencies.

►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.

►Staffing opportunities, supervision responsibilities and sub-office management. 

►Measuring program outcomes for fundraising and marketing effectiveness.  Participants will learn what data can be collected, analyzed and marketed to compel stakeholders to provide ongoing support for immigration legal services.

►Group application workshop models with consideration of current uses in addition to prospective use for unexpected changes in immigration law or policy.

►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).
