Get Involved

Join us in protecting a child’s right to a safe, stable future.

Volunteer

Pro-bono attorneys and other volunteers are critical to the Safe Passage Project model.


Lawyers

Safe Passage Project is able to reach as many immigrant children in NYC as possible thanks to the generous commitment of over 400 pro bono attorneys — and we are always looking for more volunteers. We provide mentorship throughout the duration of the case regarding immigration and family law, practice and procedure; sample applications, motions and pleadings; documentation; and other case resources. With this mentorship model, any capable lawyer can make a major difference in an immigrant child's life. If you are interested, please contact us below and then read our Memorandum of Understanding. We'll follow up with next steps.


Law Students

Interested in immigration law? Looking for hands-on experience? We rely heavily on the hard work and dedication of law student volunteers and interns. Fill out the survey below if you are interested and we'll be in touch.


All Volunteers

You don't need to be a lawyer or law student to make a difference. If you are passionate about immigrant rights and looking for a way to help, we'd love to hear from you. Fill out the survey below and we'll follow up shortly.
