No Legal Experience Required
What You Would Do
You will be equipped to develop relationships with CIAC clients and get hands-on experience assisting our legal staff with their cases.
Your hours will primarily be dedicated to corresponding with clients to gather important documentation and information vital for their immigration cases, updating legal staff on client needs and progress, maintaining case data, praying with and for our clients, and assisting with other general case support.
We are in search of a few individuals to truly dedicate themselves to this work and are asking prospective volunteers to give a minimum of 8-10 hours/week to this volunteer position.
We realize that this is not a small ask and recognize that not everyone has the capacity to give so much of their time, and that’s ok!
We are happy to keep you informed of other volunteer opportunities that may arise, but ask that you prayerfully consider if this might be a ministry God is calling you to.
