Volunteer Opportunities

IIBA has served immigrants and refugees for over 100 years. Our longevity is the legacy of the many dedicated volunteers who have made this work possible.

Emily & James

We’re always seeking volunteer support, whether it’s for a one-time event, for a short term, or for a long-term commitment. Everyone is welcome, from volunteer attorneys seeking immigration experience, to law students looking for an internship, to members of the community who just want to help. We provide training and supervision to volunteers committed to helping our diverse group of clients.
