Immigration Program Management Techniques and Strategies

Course Description

Every day, the number of immigrants in need of quality, affordable legal assistance increases. Often, nonprofits are the only place in the community they can turn. Is your program up to the challenge?

Lead by CLINIC staff, this four-week, introductory-level course will cover the basic components needed to run an effective immigration legal services program. Participants will learn best practices in staffing, case management and financial management, as well as strategies to acquire the necessary space, equipment and tools needed for an efficiently-operating program. An optional session on Department of Justice Recognition and Accreditation will also be included as a fifth week session. Additionally, participants will have access to a variety of self-directed learning activities, including reading assignments, review sample materials and quizzes.

This course is appropriate 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, such as ESL and citizenship.
