There are many types of immigration cases available, and volunteers may choose a case that fits his/her interests and experience. The volunteer will receive support throughout the case from an experienced immigration attorney on staff with Ascentria.

Ascentria is always seeking bilingual volunteers to interpret for client meetings. This is a great way to get involved and make a real difference in a client’s life.

We particularly need interpreters who speak:

  • Arabic
  • French
  • Burmese
  • Chinese
  • Portuguese
  • Spanish
  • Vietnamese
