CARECEN is facilitating Immigrant Navigator volunteer trainings at its Hempstead and Brentwood offices that are open to the community at large. The presentations will be given in English. Space is limited, so interested individuals can reach out to our Immigrant Community Navigator Samantha Pfaff (firstname.lastname@example.org) in order to register.
Hempstead training: Thursday, May 24 from 10am-3pm
91 N. Franklin St. Suite 208 Hempstead, NY
Brentwood training: Thursday, May 31 from 10am-3pm
2000 Brentwood Rd. Second Floor Brentwood, NY
The training will focus on immigration themes such as the basics of immigration law and challenges for immigrants such as administrative changes, notario fraud, and preparing for interactions with immigration enforcement.
This is a great opportunity for those who receive questions about immigration options available to community members but aren’t sure what the answer is or where to get that information/resource; this could include volunteers and staff at other service agencies and organizations with immigrant clients or simply concerned community members. The goal is to build a network of volunteers connected to the Immigrant Community Navigator program on Long Island who are knowledgable (even if only at basic levels) and able to connect community members with important information about opportunities and resources across the island that are available but potentially unknown to community members.
Throughout the year, CARECEN will have other opportunities for interested people to participate in similar trainings in case they aren’t able to come this time.
