Immigration Navigators

Support immigrant communities in their empowerment! Become an Immigration Navigator today! 

"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

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
  • require participants to commit to a Statement of Principles.
  • are free for nonprofit organizations! Local government agencies and for-profit organizations interested in attending should contact the email listed below for information on fees.

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