Need 10 Volunteers. Haitian-Creole speakers needed

Friends of NYLAG,

NYLAG routinely offers one-day legal clinics in the community to address urgent and other large-scale needs. Participants undergo training in the legal issues addressed in the clinic and are supervised by NYLAG staff attorneys. NYLAG has several different one-day legal clinic volunteer opportunities available. Pro bono attorneys, law grads and law students are welcome to participate.


Please let me know as soon as possible if you are interested in joining us at one or more of these clinics. Due to space limitations, we can only accommodate the indicated number of volunteers at each site, so we cannot accept everyone who might be interested in participating on a given day. 

** To sign up for one or more of the One-Day Legal Clinics, please fill out this form. You may contact me for questions, but the only way to sign up for the clinics is via the online form.  

Due to the high volume of interested volunteers, please note it may take 2-3 business days to respond to your request to volunteer. Please wait for confirmation before making plans to go to a site.

Thank you for your ongoing support and commitment to serving those in need in our community.

Best regards,

Jaida Samuels

  Citizenship and Naturalization Clinic

According to the United States Citizenship & Immigration Service, only 40% of eligible immigrants in the New York City metro area have applied for naturalization. Citizenship provides immigrants with many benefits, including: voting rights, expanded opportunity to petition for foreign relatives within the United States and abroad, as well as access to medical and other benefits available to low-income individuals.

NYLAG is holding a community-based clinic to help qualified immigrants apply for naturalization and needs pro bono attorneys, legal volunteers (BIA representatives and paralegals) or general volunteers to help screen clients for eligibility for naturalization, review the necessary forms and documents, and draft naturalization petitions and fee waivers, if applicable. NYLAG staff will provide on-site supervision and guidance during all clinics.
