Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities with MinKwon Center

The MinKwon Center will be hosting several Naturalization Clinics, starting on April 24. These clinics are great opportunities to assist low-income community members with immigration law forms. Clinics will be held at the MinKwon Center’s office in Flushing and Fort Lee, NJ. 

No prior experience is necessary, and training will be provided on the day of each clinic. MinKwon keeps a log of all volunteer hours and MinKwon is glad to certify your pro bono hours for the NY bar admission requirement. 

MinKwon will be helping eligible legal permanent residents (i.e., green card holders) complete their applications to become naturalized U.S. citizens. MinKwon could use the assistance of attorneys, students and interpreters. Korean and/or Chinese language ability is especially helpful. Please sign up here to join MinKwon.
