BACKGROUND

Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) is an innovative partnership among interested philanthropists, law firms and corporate supporters. As the leading national organization that works to ensure that no refugee or immigrant child faces immigration court alone, KIND is dedicated to providing pro bono representation as well as positive systemic change in both law and policy to improve the protection of unaccompanied immigrant and refugee children. KIND also engages in programming in Central America and Mexico to promote the best interests and protection of migrant children throughout the region. Launched in fall 2008, KIND is headquartered in Washington, DC and has 10 field offices across the United States.

About the opportunity: KIND is seeking volunteers in providing non-legal volunteering opportunities. Specific work will vary according to office. KIND has offices in Seattle WA, San Francisco CA, Fresno CA, Los Angeles CA, Houston TX, Boston MA, New York City NY, Newark NJ, Baltimore MD, Washington D.C., Falls Church VA, and Atlanta GA.

Fluency in Spanish and English is not required, but preferred. Experience with children or victims of trauma is also preferred, though not required. Volunteers state their own availability and agree to volunteer assignments on a case-by-case basis.

Volunteers must pass a criminal background check and sign a confidentiality agreement.

This is an unpaid volunteer opportunity. We regretfully are unable to reimburse volunteers for travel or other expenses accrued during volunteering.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.

Thank you for your interest and generosity!
