The Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC) is a national network of non-profits that provide legal services to immigrants.  CLINIC invites you to join this FREE webinar on President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, in particular Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for the Parents of U.S. Citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA). These programs protect undocumented students and parents from deportation so that they can work legally and pursue their educational goals. This webinar is for educators, counselors, and others working in schools and adult education programs who want to learn more about immigration relief for undocumented students and their families.  We will provide an overview of DACA and DAPA, including who may be eligible, and ways that educators can help community members access trusted information and locate appropriate legal assistance. Before summer vacation begins, learn how you can help change the lives of the undocumented students you teach and support!

DACA Now – Administrative Relief Next: Evaluation for Success

Wednesday, November 12

3:00 to 4:30 pm Eastern Daylight Time

Cost: Free

 

Is evaluation a component of your program?  This webinar offers various recommendations on what to evaluate and how.  CLINIC will feature how DACA services, past and present, are important lessons learned when planning to implement even larger-scale services. 

Nearly 600,000 DACA applications have been approved out of an estimated 1.7 million eligible.  Is this success?  What outcomes have occurred in the lives of DACA recipients? 

President Obama’s anticipated announcement of administrative relief may benefit up to 5 million people. Evaluation skills and using the DACA experience will help you implement administrative relief for large numbers of people previously unseen.  This webinar will provide techniques to not only evaluate numbers as data points but create “story points” to market your program’s success.

Presenters include Michelle Sardone, Legalization Program Program Director, Jeff Chenoweth, Capacity Building Section Director and Noemi Guzman, Program Coordinator/BIA Full Accredited Representative at Catholic Charities of Central Florida in Orlando.

DACA Emerging Best Practices - A Conversation between CLINIC and Affiliates 
 

2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time
11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time
Affiliates Only
Free

Join CLINIC's Capacity Building staff for a moderated discussion of affiliates on "real-time" DACA management and implementation issues.  This online meeting, as opposed to a teaching webinar, will give CLINIC affiliates an opportunity to speak to their peers about the many management questions and program modifications that have come up since DACA applications were first accepted on August 15th.


The purposes of the conversation are to: 1) identify challenges and strategies to overcome challenges as DACA implementation evolves over time; 2)  hear how some affiliates have been successful in gaining additional resources in money and staff from their parent organizations and external funders; 3) hear how immigration program directors are serving existing clients, adding DACA clients and contemplating future benefits like state-side processing of provisional unauthorized presence waivers; 4) plan for future surges in DACA applications.

If you have questions to pose or information to share during this online meeting, please contact your Field Support Coordinator so issues and presenters can be identified in advance.
