Volunteer & Internship Opportunities
¡HICA!'s volunteer opportunities range from weekly office support to special community events to advocacy. We can often find volunteer projects for volunteers of all levels of Spanish. Depending on volunteers' interests, they may work with our Strong Families program, Immigration & Access to Justice program, Community Engagement and Education, or Asset Building and Economic Development program. We also often look for volunteers with special skills such as web or graphic design, translating or interpreting, and event planning.
Interning with ¡HICA!
¡HICA! enjoys having interns year-round to assist with our daily operations and help us complete special projects. Interns have the opportunity to learn about nonprofit organizations, social work, community organizing, immigration law, and Birmingham's Hispanic community. ¡HICA! has three general sessions of internships; spring, summer, and fall. It is not a requirement to be a student to be an intern with ¡HICA!.
¡HICA! works with local law schools to recruit legal interns for the spring, summer, and fall. For details, contact attorney Josh Medina of the Immigration and Access to Justice Program at email@example.com.
