Remote Opportunities

VECINA has a number of volunteer opportunities for both attorney and non-attorney volunteers.


VECINA’s ReUnite Project assists family members and other loved ones seeking the release of unaccompanied immigrant children from U.S. government custody.

We recently put out a request for 10 more volunteer attorneys, 10 more admin support volunteers, and more volunteer interpreters (especially Haitian Creole). We are so thankful to have had more than the needed number of admin support volunteers, so we are no longer accepting more admin volunteers at this time. We are still in need of more attorney volunteers and volunteer interpreters in languages other than Spanish, as we are very fortunate to already have many volunteer Spanish interpreters lined up to help with these cases

Thank you for your understanding!

Afghan Adjustment of Status

Thousands of Afghan nationals fled to the United States in search of safety. Many have now received asylee status, and now need to apply for adjustment of status to become legal permanent residents (LPRs) in the U.S. We need volunteer attorneys and administrative support.

This project is rolling out in January 2024.

Defensive Asylum

Many asylum seekers appearing in Immigration Court find themselves unable to find legal help. Defensive asylum volunteers fight for their clients’ permission to stay. We need volunteer attorneys, administrative support, and interpreters.

*We are not currently accepting new volunteers for this project. Please check back with us soon.
