All eyes are on immigration, and as leaders of legal services programs, your actions are being felt far and wide. Now more than ever, you must prioritize improving your program and making sure your community knows you are a resource.
Unlike any training before it, this advanced immigration program management course addresses current topics that immigration program directors face, in addition to some of the long-standing challenges in this daily work. It features proven and promising practices that have been tested by other practitioners across the country, within and outside CLINIC’s growing network of affiliates. Through discussion and small group activities, you will have the chance to put many of these concepts into practice before the session ends. Additionally, you will be able to network with your peers who closely understand what it takes to succeed in this role.
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 KYRs 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
►. Participants will work through exercises that explore common issues that arise in our network.
►. Participants will work through ethical scenarios and discuss solutions.
►Open forum for participants to raise issues, ask questions and share good practices that are replicable
