Immigration Program Management Training
This two-day training provides a complete overview of how to start and sustain a nonprofit immigration legal services program. It features a manual and curriculum that offers detailed information and suggestions for applying for Board of Immigration Appeals agency recognition and staff accreditation, implementing effective case management systems, fundraising and scores of other pertinent topics related to managing an immigration program.
This training is continuously updated to reflect recent laws such as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and the new provisional unlawful presence waiver. It will help you to prepare for even bigger changes such as Comprehensive Immigration Reform, AgJOBS, and DREAM Act.
Participants will learn how to determine which applications to accept and how to adjust fees to obtain the best support for their program. There will be a discussion of case intake and management strategies, avoiding unauthorized practice of law, and strategies for working with the funders and delivering on grant objectives.
