The training will draw from these advanced areas:

►Updates to the new DOJ Recognition & Accreditation program

►Sharing best practices and resources on conducting large-scale Kknow Your Rights and Screening Events

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. Expert practitioners will share how they generate and analyze more data using their electronic case management system

Program evaluation techniques are shared as to how day-to-day data points can be turned into compelling stories about immigration successes locally and nationally in order to gain more stakeholder support and community donations
