Immigration Navigator Training (full day training):

Intended primarily for non-attorneys, particularly staff and volunteers of organizations with little or no legal capacity, this training will provide instruction on the basics of immigration law, policy, and history, information-sharing best practices, document/evidence gathering, and general outreach strategies. Leaving this training, participants will be able to assist in the case management aspects of a variety of immigration cases, including naturalization, TPS, DACA, and generalized immigration legal consultations.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         The New York Immigrant Assistance Consortium (NYIAC)

This training is being jointly conducted by The New York Immigrant Assistance Consortium (“NYIAC”), a coalition of immigrant-serving non-profit organizations and other key stakeholders committed to providing high-quality assistance to immigrants in New York State.  NYIAC believes that the coordination of efforts among New York’s immigrant-serving organizations will enable those organizations to:

§  reach the most people;
§  provide services in the most cost-effective manner;
§  minimize fraud; and
§  assure that immigrants are receiving the highest quality assistance that protects them and advances their rights.

We ask that those participating in this training become members of this coordinated effort and make a commitment to embrace the following principles:
