Welcome to our online courses! Through these courses, VECINA seeks to give volunteers the tools they need to advocate for asylum seekers. We focus on providing short videos on a limited topic, so that you can pick and choose which videos are relevant to you, and you can review content one bite at a time, or by watching several videos at once.

My experience with VECINA has been such a relief. The assistance I’ve received has been remarkably swift, specific to my case and delivered with an encouraging, optimistic attitude. After a year of doing my best to work on this case solo, I finally feel like I have the support and direction I’ve been looking for as I volunteer outside of my regular practice area.
