About

Community Navigators are community members who receive specialized training to
provide quality immigration information and services for their communities in an
empowering and effective way. They are also liaisons between their community, legal
service providers, social service organizations, and government representatives.

Your role will be to provide accurate information in your community, you will refer
applicants to trusted legal service providers and community-based organizations, and are
responsible for reporting victimization.

Necessary Skills

  • bilingual speakers preferred but will also train monolingual Spanish speakers
  • Bi-cultural (having experience in one or more cultures) or cross-cultural experience
  • Experience with immigration issues in the United States (either personal, through family, work, or others)

*For those that are neither bilingual or bicultural but are hoping to lend a hand to our community, there will be opportunities to do different types of work, such as helping put materials together, helping set up community events, etc. If you are interested, please contact us to set up an interview to determine in which capacity you can help Centro Latino and the Latino community in Lane County.

Training Sessions

There will be 5 required initial training sessions and a check-in/follow-up meeting once a month.
