If you’re interested in volunteering with the Immigrant Welcome Center, we have a diverse number of opportunities available. Please see our options below:
Our Naturalization Workshops aim to provide free legal assistance to Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) who are ready to become naturalized U.S. citizens.
We recruit general event support volunteers , interpreters, and attorneys. Please note that you do NOT have to be an immigration attorney in order to volunteer and assist LPRs with their N-400 Application for Naturalization. For this reason, we provide a 1 hour CLE training before the workshop.
If you are interested in volunteering, please email our Naturalization and Marketing Coordinator, Jackie Rodriguez at Jrodriguez@immigrantwelcomecenter.org.
Natural Helper Program
Our lead volunteers are called Natural Helpers, and they help immigrants and refugees transitioning to life in Indianapolis. Natural Helpers are immigrants themselves who understand the challenges of moving to a new place, learning a new language, finding employment, and establishing a home in the United States.
