Volunteer at the U.S.-Mexico Border

Given the evolving situation regarding COVID-19, for the safety of our staff and volunteers, HIAS has suspended all in-person client meetings and all non-essential travel, including delegations to the border. We are however still actively recruiting volunteers to help asylum seekers remotelyPlease take a look at these volunteer opportunities below. 

We continue to see the devastating effects of the current U.S. immigration policy. HIAS has launched an emergency Border Response Team program that assists asylum seekers by translating important documents needed to litigate their asylum claims, and providing limited or full legal representation in immigration court.

Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Spanish-speaking individuals can volunteer remotely to support HIAS' Border Response Team by providing translations of documents. No legal experience required. Find out more and sign up here.
  • If you are a lawyer and interested in helping asylum seekers remotely, find out more here.
