Volunteers are at the heart of our work
Here is how you can get involved and make a difference in a child’s life. No immigration experience is necessary. KIND trains and mentors our volunteers throughout their cases.
Help KIND make a greater impact today.
KIND partners with major law firms, corporations, law schools, and bar associations to create a nationwide pro bono network to represent unaccompanied children through their immigration proceedings. Pro bono attorneys gain valuable skills by:
– Working directly with the child client to build his/her case
– Gaining valuable courtroom experience
– Learning new skills and develop expertise in a unique area of law
Join KIND’s growing and dynamic team of partners that are working to ensure no child appears in court alone.KIND Partners
Help KIND make a greater impact through your community involvement today!
KIND believes that with a little bit of time and help from the community, each and every one of us has the ability to help a child reach his or her potential for a safe and productive future.
– Hold a fundraising bake sale at your school
– Help in translating for a child so she/he can successfully present his or her case
– Collect toys and schools supplies for kids being served at a local KIND office
– Ask to hold a donation service at your local church or community center
– Make a donation in honor of a friend or family member’s birthday
Join KIND supporters who are working to ensure no child appears in court alone through ongoing, community engagement efforts.
KIND provides a variety of training and information materials to augment our in-person trainings and mentoring, and ensure that our volunteers have all the tools they need to make the best possible case for their client.Resources
“When I talk to young lawyers about why I do this, I say these really are death penalty cases in a way, because in many of these cases if the client gets sent back to his or her home country, there is a very good chance they will be killed.” – Ron Schechter, Arnold & Porter LLPRead full story »
“KIND has been extremely helpful. Whenever we had questions about filing or eligibility requirements or procedural issues, our KIND coordinators were right there to help and work with us to find the correct answer.” – Mariya Deryugina, Crowell & Moring LLPRead full story »
“Until I came across KIND, I really hadn’t found something where I could use my professional skills to help people- I was always doing things through my community and church, but with KIND I could use my experience as an attorney to help children.” –Meredith Stewart, Pappas and Lenzo LLPRead full story »
“What really brought me the most satisfaction professionally was to work with these pro bono clients because you meet them and you form that bond, and just want to help them. To have that impact on a young person’s life is immensely rewarding and satisfying.” – Joe Lee, Munger Tolles & OlsonRead full story »
Give safety and freedom
Your help could mean the difference between a child who needs protection being sent back to his or her home country where the child’s life may be in danger – and the child being able to stay in the United States to live in safety and freedom.
