Immigration Navigators

Immigration Navigator trainings are part of a unique program that supports immigrant communities in their empowerment!

"The (Navigator) training is indispensable in helping our communities to prepare and not panic during this moment of uncertainty, and protect them from fraud." - Immigration Navigator training participant

OVERVIEW
Immigration Navigators are individuals who support immigrant communities with Know Your Rights trainings and guidance on navigating the immigration system (e.g., preparing to meet with an immigration attorney).

Before entering their service, Immigration Navigators participate in a day-long training run by the NYIC. The trainings currently:

  • cover topics such how to facilitate a Know Your Rights training for immigrants; immigration law; designing a family safety plan for potential interactions with law enforcement (e.g., ICE); fighting hate crimes; and much more

Upon completion, if attendees use any information from the training curriculum to voluntarily deliver their own trainings and info sessions to the communities they serve, they will work with the NYIC or with an NYIC member or partner organization to do so. All participants must adhere to a Statement of Principles, which is signed during the training. 

If you have questions about the Immigration Navigator program, please email navigators@nyic.org
