Become a Student Volunteer

Are you interested in helping immigrant rights organizations but don't know how? ILDC, the Immigrant Legal Defense Center welcomes student volunteers to learn more about immigration by educating immigrant communities about their civil rights, assisting our volunteer attorneys with translation, organizing fundraising events for ILDC, spreading the word about ILDC's services through social media, becoming a child advocate for immigrant children, and collaborating with educational graphic design projects for our Know Your Rights workshops.

No Experience in Immigration Law Necessary

Are you looking for a way to help the local immigrant community? Did you know that not a single non-profit organization in the entire Central Coast exclusively represents immigrants in removal proceedings? The ILDC fills this void by training volunteer attorneys to represent immigrants in bond proceedings. Following sign-up, volunteer attorneys attend a comprehensive bond training conducted by seasoned practitioners to learn the nuts and bolts of bond representation. Then, attorneys are matched with a mentoring immigration attorney who will provide guidance on each case to ensure high quality legal representation.
