East Bay Dreamers Project partners with the East Bay Community Law Center (EBCLC) in providing immigration legal services to support and empower Bay Area undocumented community members. EBDP specifically focuses on DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. EBDP helps clients with their initial and renewal DACA applications and advance parole (permission to travel outside the US). Apart from DACA, EBDP also helps EBCLC conduct general immigration consultations to identify other options for legal status.
Supervision: Law students work under the supervision of East Bay Community Law Center attorneys at monthly legal clinics to fill out client applications and conduct legal assessments.
Time Commitment: Students should expect to volunteer approximately 15 hours per semester. This includes a 3-4 hour initial training. We hold clinics approximately once a month, with each clinic lasting 3-4 hours.
