Volunteers stand outside El Refugio, a hospitality house and CIVIC-affiliated visitation program in Georgia.
CIVIC is a network of over 40 immigration detention visitation programs, a national detention hotline, and a developing pen-pal program! We welcome those who would like to join our team, as there are many opportunities to plug in!
BECOME A FUNDRAISING CONSULTANT VOLUNTEER
As a small, start-up nonprofit with a unique theory of change, we are looking for a fundraising consultant volunteer who has experience helping small nonprofits build their individual donor base and access new foundations. Learn more and apply here!
BECOME A VISITOR VOLUNTEER OR PROGRAM COORDINATOR
Check out the locations of CIVIC’s current affiliated visitation programs, and fill out the National Interest Form to be connected to a program near you! If there is a detention center near you, but no program nearby, we may be calling on you to help start a new program!

CIVIC runs a National Hotline, which provides people in immigration detention, with a way to connect to us by phone. We are looking for hotline advocates to help answer calls, and provide support. Email CMansfield@endisolation.org to learn more or fill out the National Interest Form to support people in immigration detention from the comfort of your own home.
BECOME A PEN PAL
CIVIC is developing a national pen pal program to connect people in isolated detention centers to pen-pals who care and will provide hope. Please fill out the National Interest Form. Learn more here and email questions to Paula Kahn at PKahn@endisolation.org.
BECOME A NEW MEDIA REPORTER FOR CIVIC
CIVIC is always looking for creative ways to engage the public, including through written, audio, and video stories projects. Email Tina Shull at TShull@endisolation.org to get involved!
