The Florence Immigrant & Refugee Rights Project (www.firrp.org) is a non-profit organization providing free legal services to the more than 4,000 men, women, and unaccompanied children detained for immigration removal proceedings in Arizona on any given day.  Because there is no right to government-appointed counsel in immigration proceedings, an estimated 86% of immigrants appear alone before an immigration judge.  The Florence Project addresses this inequity by providing legal orientation and education services, individual legal intakes, court preparation activities, referrals to volunteer attorneys in the community, and direct representation to immigrants in federal custody who cannot afford to hire private counsel.

The Children's Program provides "know your rights" presentations, intakes, court preparation, and legal representation services to unaccompanied immigrant children in federal custody in Tucson.  Most of the children served are recent migrants from Central American countries.

The data entry assistant provides the Children's Program team with critical data tracking and administrative support. This is a temporary, part time position, lasting approximately 3 months, 25 hours a week. There is a possibility for extended hours and that this position will become permanent, depending on the need and funding.  Salary is $12/hour.  The position is not eligible for benefits.

            Board Member Needed — My Bucket List Inc. (Phoenix)

            Date Posted: April 27, 2016
            Position Description:

            Xbox Kinect Sports for Senior Citizens

            Promoting Activity for Senior Citizens with the Use of Xbox Kinect

             

            My Bucket list Foundation is an exciting new charity that utilizes technology for the purpose of inter-generational activity.  We are a volunteer based organization, empowering teens to participate in activities with elderly individuals.  By empowering teenagers to work with senior citizens, we expose them to the honest and pure wisdom of our seniors.

             

            Currently we hold sessions at two-dozen Senior Centers in five different cities in the greater Phoenix metro-area.  With the rise in desire for our services, we are finding it difficult to keep up with our limited volunteer base.  It is my goal to build a stronger, larger and more impactful group of volunteers to accommodate the rising demand.  It is a shame when we cant fulfill requests from these senior-care facilities due to the lack of qualified volunteers.

             

            What we do:

             

                        Typically, we go into a senior care facility and utilize Xbox 360 Kinect®. Xbox 360 Kinect® allows the user to interact with the gaming system through simple movements and gestures.  We have noticed that senior citizens respond well to the activity—enjoying participating or, in some cases, enjoy watching their fellow residents participate.  The importance of aerobic or anaerobic activity becomes greater as individuals get older.  As well as physical benefits, we have noticed a correlation with individuals suffering from memory loss as they are able to retain these new techniques on a weekly basis.  We see a huge moral benefit for the teens facilitating the activities as well as they gain an appreciation for their elders—a value that has somewhat diminished in today’s generations.  The exercise program that we use has nearly 70 games, which stimulate the elderly participants into becoming active.  With the use of the Kinect®, the elderly can operate the game through simple motions and gestures, allowing them to experience a degree of virtual reality. 

             Looking for somebody who can become an active board member over this charity. 

            Position Qualifications:

            ambitious

            STAFF ATTORNEY--MENTAL HEALTH REPRESENTATION — Florence Immigrant & Refugee Rights Project (Florence)

            Date Posted: April 19, 2016
            Position Description:

            The Organization

            The Florence Project was founded in 1989 to respond to a representation crisis for indigent non-citizens detained at the rural Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Detention Center in Florence, Arizona. Through our programs today, we provide services to the more than 4,000 men, women, and children that are detained in Arizona on any given day. The Florence Project is nationally known for its legal service delivery systems which ensure that detained people are empowered and have access to justice. The Florence Project provides high quality legal services and supports initiatives for national changes in immigration law and policy.

            The Position

            The Florence Project is hiring a full-time Staff Attorney to provide direct representation to detained individuals with serious mental health issues in immigration removal proceedings. The Staff Attorney will work primarily with clients who have been found mentally incompetent by an immigration judge and who are appointed a Qualified Representative by the Executive Office for Immigration Review. The attorney in this position provides direct representation in cases assigned under contract by EOIR to the Florence Project. Direct representation includes representation in immigration proceedings and custody redetermination hearings before the Immigration Court, representation before the Board of Immigration Appeals, and other related services reasonably necessary to complete these proceedings. The Staff Attorney will work with the Florence Project's social workers on release planning (connecting the individual to community services such as health care, housing, or other support as needed), and work with mental health professionals and other experts for assigned clients' cases. The Staff Attorney may handle a small caseload of non-mental health cases, and assist with other Florence Project legal duties on an as-needed basis for coverage.

            This is an immediate opening. The position is based out of the Florence Project's main office in Florence, a prison town approximately one hour south of Phoenix and one and a half hours north of Tucson, with flexibility to work out of the Project's Tucson or Phoenix offices 1-2 days a week. This is a full-time litigation position that requires frequent time spent in detention facilities in Eloy and Florence. Salary is commensurate with experience. Benefits include medical, dental, and vision insurance, as well as generous vacation and leave policies and a supportive work environment. 

            Position Qualifications:

            Requirements

            Fluency in Spanish is required. The applicant must be licensed to practice law in any state, or waiting on bar results. We seek applicants who have a demonstrated commitment to immigration issues and public interest law, who enjoy working in a collaborative, high volume, and energetic work environment, and who are flexible team players. Prior advocacy, practice, or clinical experience in immigration or criminal law and experience working with clients with mental health issues is strongly preferred. Must have a sharp legal mind, and enjoy challenging casework and litigation. Prior advocacy work in immigrant rights, human rights, LGBTQ rights, criminal justice, mental health advocacy, or experience working with trauma survivors is a plus. 

            How to Apply:

            To apply, please email a resume, letter of interest, three references, and writing sample to jobs@firrp.org. The Florence Project recognizes the value of diversity in the workplace and strongly encourages applications from people of color, LGBTQ individuals, persons with disabilities, and members of under-represented or disadvantaged communities. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and candidates are encouraged to apply early. Only those selected for an interview will be contacted.

            Country Associate, Central America — Clinton Health Access Initiative (Panama City)

            Date Posted: April 28, 2016
            Position Description:

            Founded in 2002 by President William J. Clinton, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems around the world and expanding access to care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, malaria and other illnesses. Based on the premise that business oriented strategy can facilitate solutions to global health challenges, CHAI acts as a catalyst to mobilize new resources and optimize the impact of these resources to save lives, via improved organization of commodity markets and more effective local management. By working in association with governments and other NGO partners, CHAI is focused on large scale impact and, to date, CHAI has secured lower pricing agreements for treatment options in more than 70 countries. In addition, CHAI's teams are working side-by-side with over 30 governments to tackle many of the largest barriers to effective treatment and care.

            Malaria is one of the world's most important causes of illness, death, and lost economic productivity. Over the past decade, dramatic increases in donor funding have facilitated scale-up of effective interventions to prevent, diagnosis, and treat malaria. This investment has successfully reduced the burden of malaria in many settings, and some countries have begun planning to eliminate it altogether. Yet these gains are fragile: global funding for malaria remains short of what is needed, last decade's rapid growth in malaria financing appears to have halted, and resistance to insecticides and drugs threatens to set back efforts. The great majority of the growth in funding for malaria programs has come from potentially volatile international donors rather than from domestic contributions, making the sustainability of recent gains an open question.

            CHAI provides direct management and technical support to countries around the globe to strengthen their malaria programs and reduce the burden of this preventable, treatable disease. We support governments to scale up effective interventions for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance, with the goals of sustainably reducing the number of malaria-related illnesses and deaths worldwide in the short-term and accelerating progress towards malaria elimination in the long term.

            Position Qualifications:

            • Work with the CHAI Regional Manager to develop a country work plan for delivering a coordinated program of support to the National Malaria Program
