The Project

The justice AmeriCorps project is the result of a strategic partnership between CNCS-AmeriCorps and DOJ-EOIR to increase national service while facilitating the effective and efficient adjudication of immigration proceedings involving certain children who have crossed the border without a parent or legal guardian. The program will serve children under the age of 16 who are in removal proceedings that have not been consolidated with those of a parent or legal guardian, and who have been released from the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement or the Department of Homeland Security to the custody of local sponsors.

The program is expected to lead to greater efficiencies in immigration proceedings involving unaccompanied children, while responding to Congress’ call to “better serve vulnerable populations such as children,” as well as survivors of human trafficking and other abuse.
